EBSCO will be making adjustments to its technical infrastructure in July 2016. To accomplish this, EBSCO's services will be delivered from a much larger range of IP addresses and they will no longer be able to provide a list of the IP addresses used by their servers, as was previously available.

This change will only affect customers who are currently restricting system access to particular IP addresses – also known as “whitelisting”. For the vast majority of customers EBSCO does not expect this change to have any direct impact, but please consult with your technology department to determine the impact to your organization.

To avoid any interruptions in service, please make all recommended updates before July 2016.

Read more about this change on the EBSCO Support Site.
