Scopus and ScienceDirect will be down on Saturday, February 26

The databases Scopus and ScienceDirect will be down for a planned outage all day on Saturday, February 26 (8am to 8pm).  This also means that most access to journals from the publisher Elsevier will not be available.

The company that produces Scopus announced a planned outage for February 26

Students who have upcoming research projects can browse our subject guides to find alternative databases for their topics.  For alternative access to journals, use our journal finder to locate individual titles.  Research help is available at the service desk any time the library is open, and a reference librarian will be on duty from 12noon to 5pm on the day of the outage (2/26).

Additional information about the scheduled outage is available from the company here.
