PQDT Not Available Off-Campus

We regret to inform you that access to Proquest Dissertation & Thesis  Global – PQDT (off campus) via Ezproxy is not available due to some technical issues.
However, PQDT can still be accessed using UTM network within the campus. Please let us know if you need any additional help accessing our online resources.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

Problem Accessing Online Database (via Ezproxy)

We are currently facing some issues with access to online database via Ezproxy especially when you login with students’ ACID account. If you are affected by this, you might be receiving the message below upon login :

“YOUR ACID WAS NOT ACTIVE. WE ARE SORRY TO INFORM THAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ACCESS UTM ONLINE DATABASE”

However, access using staff ACID account or direct on campus access is not affected.

As this will take some time, please bear with us as we are fixing this glitch together with CICT.

Thank you for your co-operation and we apologise for the inconvenience.

Pidgeon Digital – Pidgeon Digital is an online Audiovisual collection of illustrated talks by the greats of the Architectural, Design & Engineering world, which has been built up over more than 35 years.

Do you find the database useful? Please provide us with your feedback. The feedback you provide will help us to evaluate and improve services.

 

 

SAGE Journals – On Campus Access Only.

Access to SAGE via Ezproxy (off campus) is currently not available due to technical error on the publisher’s side which will take few days to be rectified. Fortunately, SAGE can be accessed on campus by using UTM network/within campus/faculty/library. Just copy this URL http://journals.sagepub.com/ and paste it on your browser’s URL/address bar. Again, make sure you are within UTM network for it to work.

 

Cancellation of Online Resources

We regret to inform you that due to financial constraints, we have to review our online resources subscription. Hence, it is very unfortunate that our subscription to these databases has ended:
  1. American Chemical Society (ACS)
  2. Institute of Physics (IOP Science)
  3. Polymer Library Online
However, if you wish to get any resources currently not subscribed by the library, please use our Inter library Loan service instead. More info is available at http://library.utm.my/using-the-library-2/interlibrary-loan/
Please be aware that the Library does not make any product cancellation decisions lightly, we usually make decisions based on the coverage of a resource and its usage statistics over a period of 1-2 years. All of our online resources incur significant expenditure, and their costs are rising each year. Therefore, we would encourage all users to make use of our resources. For latest updates, please visit http://library.utm.my.
Should you need further assistance please do not hesitate to contact any of our Librarians. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused.
