Sage Knowledge eBook Collection: accessible again

Following the interruption in access on the Sage Knowledge eBook Collection reported yesterday, Sage has restored the access to the 4,300 eBook titles in the library’s collection. Access to all subscribed titles in the collection is once again direct on-campus, and by university username and password from off-campus.

The Sage Knowledge platform has improved the handling of deep-linking through institutional login since the library first provided a walkthrough of each step of the process in March 2015. The revised off-campus login process is now as follows:

In the top-right hand corner of the screen, click on the Institution button (see illustration below):

In the pop-up that then loads, do not enter your username or password in the ‘Institutional Login’ boxes, but instead click on the Shibboleth link in the ‘Other Login Options’ section (see illustration below):

On the ‘Shibboleth Login’ page that then loads, select Nottingham Trent University from the drop-down list, to direct the browser to the ‘NTU Single Sign-on’ page (see illustration below).

After logging in successfully, your browser will be returned to the Sage Knowledge eBook platform; and to the same page on which your login request began: in other words, deep-linking to the eBook title level (which was not previously supported for off-campus visitors) now works first time.
