The search on the LIbrary home page (CrossSearch) currently has a bug which means links to full text result in an Error 404 message. The problem is part of the URL is being cut off, and / and : characters  in the URL are being converted to hex codes.

eg ,

There are  3 options for workarounds.

1. In CrossSearch, scroll down to the DOI link in the right hand menu ( which comes up when you mouse over a title) and try that. The link will work, but might not let people access the fulltext from off campus.

2. Go to the catalogue, find the journal title, then drill down to the article you want.

3. Edit the URL in your browser address bar when you get the Error 404 message.

The URL above needed to be edited to this format:

Insert login?url= after

And replace %3A with  a colon : and every %2F in the URL with a forward slash / , then hit Enter.
