Problems opening EBSCO ebooks

Many libraries, including UFV, are experiencing problems opening e-books provided by EBSCOhost. The problems seem to occur when using Firefox or Internet Explorer.  A possible solution for now is to use Chrome or Safari as your preferred browser.  EBSCO is aware of the issue and is currently working on a solution.
There are no problems opening books from our other e-book vendors, including ebrary, Sage and myilibrary.
We apologize for the problems this may be causing our users.
