Q

Google Scholar connection issue

When I click on "Google Scholar" from any of the Library pages and/or the databases pages, I get a notification of an untrusted site. Image has been attached.
Is this my computer or a general problem?

Answer

When trying to access certain resources (e.g. Google Scholar, Dawsonera etc.) listed on the Library website, the user is presented with an error page especially if using Google Chrome as a browser (other browsers give similar messages). In order to access the resource, please click on Advanced and then on Proceed to 0-scholar.co.za.wam.seals.ac.za (unsafe). Please note that this solution ONLY applies to links that contain the 0-.wam.seals.ac.za sub-domain information.
