Recently we updated many of our research databases to a new platform by Proquest. We are unfortunately experiencing a few problems during this transition and are working with the Proquest technical support staff to resolve them as quickly as possible.
If you experience any difficulty with these resources, please contact us at Ask a Librarian. We will assist you in obtaining the resources you need.
We apologize for any inconvenience these problems have caused.

On Monday August 24th, the PURL server at the Government Printing Office suffered a significant hardware failure. GPO staff has been working at the highest level of priority to re-establish server access. As of Monday August 31st, only 3.1% of the over 166,000 links have been restored.
For the ASU Libraries, this means that the majority of links to electronic government publications in the ASU Catalog will not work until the servers are completely restored. For additional help during this time with accessing government publications, please call the Government Document Reference staff at 965-3390 or e-mail them directly at http://lib.asu.edu/govdocs/govdoc-info.
