Hi VR team,
Please note I'll be away on vacation from July 4th - July 18th and will not have access to my email or voice mail. If you do happen to get any advanced business reference or research questions through VR while I'm away, instead of referring students to me via email or by phone, please direct them to my research guides: http://libguides.lib.umanitoba.ca/mgmtlibrary/research_guides.
I'll be back in the office on July 19th.

I will be away on vacation in the afternoon. My Virtual Reference shift is from 1-2. Would anyone be available to take the shift?
Thank you so much,
I know it has been a while. But the logging issue with MyNCBI through EZproxy has been resolved.
Please feel free to contact us if there are any other problems.
Have a good weekend.

Subject: MyNCBI (PubMed): login issues
Hi Wade and Wei,
A number of us have noted that we’re having difficult accessing MyNCBI, which is a component of PubMed:
Lori and Carol (copied) have provided some feedback to this effect (I’ve attached the email). The problems persist (I’ve just re-tested as of 10 minutes ago).
Specifically, the “Sign in to NCBI” box located on the left-hand side does not appear to accept credentials when entered, and puts the user into a loop of cascading windows within that window. I believe that the problem may be linked to our proxy. As Carol notes, when accessing MyNCBI from the un-proxied version of PubMed, everything works as it should (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/).
We have tested this on a WRHA computer, our “off-campus” computer, and on several UofM computers with different OS’s and browsers, all with the same result. We rely on MyNCBI fairly heavily, so I suspect that we may start hearing from our users fairly soon about this issue. Can you help?
