CIMA's Library Guide!: Connect from Off-Campus- Help with Error Messages

Privacy/ Security Errors

Some faculty and students have been experiencing Privacy/ Security Error messages that prevent them from accessing some of our Library resources. If you encounter a Privacy/Security Error, one of the following workarounds may help alleviate the problem while we continue to look for a global fix:
 

  1. Clear your browser's cache (in Chrome, use the 3 dots in the upper-right corner, select "More Tools" and "Clear Browsing Data". You may also want to try clearing your "Cached Images and Files")
  2. Try using a browser other than Chrome to access the resources (e.g. Firefox, Safari, etc.)
  3. Use your Chrome browser in "incognito mode" (ctrl+shift+N)


IT & the Library apologize for the inconvenience and are working hard on this issue and hope it will be resolved soon. Please contact IT at 520-206-4900, or sign into the Client Portal with your MyPima information to create a ticket, or the Library for further assistance.
