    360: What is happening with Cambridge Core links and KBART files?

    Starting mid-day September 5th, 2021, we see all links to the Cambridge University Core platform failing with a 503 error message.

    Searches performed directly in the native interface also return "Error 503 Backend fetch failed". Cambridge was notified of the issue.

    On September 6th, Cambridge confirmed that the Core platform was experiencing some issues over the weekend, but that these issues seem to be resolved now.

    Should you still encounter a problem with linking to the Core collections, please open a support ticket.


    Cambridge Core KBART files

    Cambridge is having some issues with their KBART file page. When attempting to download KBART title lists, an error message occurs and the autoloader is unable to download the title list to update the collection.

    Cambridge was notified, and their technical team is working on resolving the issue.

    We will update this article once we have an update from their team.
