Find It McGill and Article Finder not working

Fri, 2006-03-03 07:30

Find It McGill and Article Finder are down. This means that the button doesn't work, and the links to ejournals from the catalogue do not work either. Links to ejournals still work from the A to Z list (see "Details") by clicking on the letter by which your title begins. We are working to solve the problem as soon as possible, and apologize profusely for the inconvenience this has caused since yesterday evening.
