Problems Accessing ABI/INFORM Articles from OneSearch

When searching OneSearch, our multi-database research tool, you might experience difficulty accessing articles from ProQuest’s ABI/INFORM Collection, especially while off-campus. You may get a “504 Gateway Time-Out” message after a long pause, or you may see a screen asking you for your institution or ProQuest username. Or you might see a screen with information about the magazine or journal the article comes from, but not the article itself. We are working to resolve the issue. You can go directly to ABI/INFORM to search for and view articles.

OneSearch is a system that keeps track of the materials in many of our various subscriptions and collections, and other sources. It can quickly give you a list of books, articles, videos, etc., ranked in order of most likely to be useful. For physical materials like books, magazines, and DVDs, it tells you where to find them. For online articles, papers, e-books, and streaming videos, it links out to the materials in the databases they come from. It’s the linking from OneSearch to ABI/INFORM that isn’t working correctly right now.

ABI/INFORM Collection, which includes ABI/INFORM Global, ABI/INFORM Trade and Industry, and ABI/INFORM Dateline, features thousands of full-text journals, dissertations, working papers, key business and economics periodicals such as The Economist, country- and industry-focused reports, and downloadable data. Its international coverage gives researchers a complete picture of companies and business trends around the world.

Library Books Available at Waianae Moku? Believe It!

Aloha!

In order to ensure that library materials are accessible to students, faculty, and staff at both Leeward Community College campuses, the Library is pleased to announce that books can now be requested for pick-up at Waianae Moku Center!

Requesting an item for delivery to Waianae Moku

On the online Library Catalog (Voyager or OneSearch), once you’ve found the book you are interested in, you can click on “Hold” (OneSearch) or “Get this Item” (Voyager).  After filling out the other necessary fields, on the field that reads “Pick up location” / “Pick up at:” you can select Leeward CC Waianae Moku Center as your site.

Hold Request Hold Request - Pickup Location

Picking up your item

Please allow 1 – 2 business days for your requested item to be transferred from Leeward CC’s Pearl City campus to Waianae Moku.  You can check with the Hawai’i-Pacific Resources Librarian, or at the front desk, to see if your item has arrived.  Items can be returned to those same locations, and they will be routed back to the Library.

The same item loan periods / availability for the Pearl City campus Library apply to items sent to Waianae Moku for pick-up (with due dates being extended slightly to account for travel time between locations).  If you would like to renew your item(s) to extend the loan period, please call the Library’s Circulation Desk at (808) 455-0210.
