404 error message display on access to Unisa library e-resources

There is an 404 error message displaying when users access the Unisa library e-resources. As a contingency measure to enable access, please do the following:

  • On the 404 error page, click the browser back button  and choose the e-resource link again.
  • If the back button is not active, close the 404 error page and choose the e-resource link again.

Another problem that might be encountered is an incorrect redirect to the library catalogue page instead of the chosen e-resource. In this case, please follow the same procedure as with the above 404 error.

Unisa ICT is investigating the issue.

Please do not hesitate to send any enquiries regarding these issues to
