UPDATE: Problems with Google Scholar via EZProxy

26 Jul 2018 - 14:00

Kindly note that a workaround to the Google Scholar issue has been implemented and off-campus users are encouraged to go to https://google-scholar.uct.ac.za. The Libraries websites and EZProxy has been updated. On campus users can still access Google Scholar via https://scholar.google.com/.

Alternatively, users can conduct their search via Primo.

We do apologise for any inconvenience caused until this problem is resolved.

Off-campus users may experience problems accessing Google Scholar via EZProxy.This is related to Google Scholar's reCAPTCHA script failing with an error similar to below screenshot. ICTS is currently liaising with Google to attend to this fix. If you experience this error and are off-campus, please go directly to Google Scholar ie. https://scholar.google.com/. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused until this problem is resolved.
