Problem with Off-campus Access to E-Resources on Android Devices

If you are using an Android phone/tablet to access our library e-resources from off-campus, you will get an error message, and you won't be able to view the FIU log-in page. This problem only occurs on an Android device. 

We are currently working to fix this problem with the EZproxy vendor. It will be fixed but it may take some time. 

Thank you for your patience and letting us know about this issue!
