Electronic Resources Updates

Problem with e-resources in OneSearch


Update, 3/22/17 at 3:56pm: This issue has now been resolved.  You can now access e-resources via OneSearch on all browsers.  If you still see a malware attack error, please contact eproblems at utk dot edu immediately.

Thank you!


We are currently experiencing a problem with e-resources in OneSearch (Primo). The problem manifests itself as a security error in web browsers, warning users that has been compromised by attackers and that the site contains malware.  ExLibris is aware of the problem and treating it as a very high priority.  Many other institutions are also experiencing the problem.

The problem seems to exist in most web browsers, with the exception of IE (Internet Explorer).  If you encounter this problem, please try IE to see if it works for you.

Thanks for your patience – we will keep you updated.

Possible Loss of Access to Various Publishers/Platforms
