Bloomsbury Platform migration: access methods, URLs & Fairchild Books Store
Further information about the Bloomsbury Fashion Central platform migration on 14th December 2021: access methods, URLs, and Fairchild Book Store.
Bloomsbury has updated their Frequently Asked Questions with details on access methods and direct URLs.
Will direct product URLs continue to work as they do now?
- Direct URL links to each product (i.e. www.bergfashionlibrary.com) will continue to redirect to www.bloomsburyfashioncentral.com.
- The current Bloomsbury Fashion Video Archive URL (www.bloomsburyfashionvideo.com) will redirect to www.bloomsburyfashioncentral.com.
What about access methods: do I need to take any actions ahead of the migration?
- Your access method, for example IP address, Shibboleth or Open Athens, will continue to work in exactly the same way.
Any Bloomsbury Fashion Central customers (of Berg Fashion Library, Fairchild Books Library, Fashion Photography Archive, Bloomsbury Fashion Business Cases or Bloomsbury Fashion Video Archive) using EZProxy need to ensure that they have the Geoplugin stanza in their EZProxy config.txt (if it is not there already) just above the Bloomsbury Fashion Central stanza.
Please therefore check and confirm that your EZProxy config file stanzas for Bloomsbury Fashion Central are as follows, including the Option Cookie directive:
