How do I report a problem if I'm having access issues with an electronic resource?


The "Report a Problem" icon appears within OneSearch and some EBSCO products and can be used when electronic material isn't linking properly. Alternatively, LRCCD librarians can transfer or submit a manual report through the LibAnswers interface. Here are details:

Using the Report a Problem Icon

If you're in OneSearch when the problem occurs, simply click the Report a Problem Icon to initiate the report. This gives ERM librarians all the information they need to investigate the issue.

Transfer a Ticket in LibAnswers

If a ticket has already been created (most likely by a non-Los Rios librarian during a Co-op chat session) and the transcript indicates there are linking issues, you can transfer it to the Problem Report queue. Here's how:

  1. Click the Assign/Transfer tab at the top of the ticket
  2. In the Transfer to box drop-down select Queue
  3. In the Select a queue to transfer to drop-down pick Problem reports
  4. Leave the Do not assign to a specific user box alone
  5. You can type a message in the box if necessary
  6. You can upload a file or screenshot if necessary
  7. You can add yourself to be CCd in the bottom box if desired or click the check-mark by your name to remove it if you don't care to see the resolution
  8. In the bottom drop-down select Submit as open - the ticket will now transfer to the Problem Reports queue
