Unavailability of Janus November 28th, 2019

The CNRS’s information systems department has stressed the need to strengthen the security of information systems and this is reflected in very regular updates to management applications. Several IT publishers are now imposing technical constraints that require services to be stopped several times a year.

For each stop, all the CNRS management applications are unavailable for 24 hours. Thus the connection to BibCnrs via the Janus identity manager will be unavailable on Thursday, November 28th, 2019.

====> The alternative will be to log in to BibCnrs using your unit’s former portal access code. If you no longer have this username / password, we invite you to contact us and we will provide it again.

We are aware of and sorry for any inconvenience this regular update will generate and hope you will understand.

Covid-19: list of facilities offered by suppliers brought to our attention

In a recent message, we informed you that Couperin, ADBU and EPRIST had invited scientific publishers to give free access to scientific publications during the Covid-19 pandemic. There have been many initiatives from our suppliers to facilitate access to content. Some suppliers temporarily open up their entire catalogue while others open the Covid-19 information or extend or relax the access conditions in view of the situation. Here is the list (put on line by COUPERIN) of the facilities offered by the suppliers which we have been informed of to date. The opening of access to the CAIRN and J-STOR resources concern current subscribers. INIST has already contacted the publishers. We will of course inform you as soon as possible if and when they are actually opened and tell you access methods. This list is of course not entirely complete but this is a true collaborative initiative and we will be adding to the list on a regular basis. We remain at your entire disposal for any questions you may have and would also be grateful for any other information you may have that could be added to this list.
