How do I fix an HttpHandler Error in EBSCO?

Oh no, have you tried to access an EBSCO database or article and received the following HTTPHandler error?

Never fear. The error message likely is caused by the interference of cookies stored on the computer. This should fix it:

  1. Do not attempt to log in again (yet).
  2. Clear the cache and cookies in your browser.
  3. Close the browser and then open it again.
  4. Try to access the database again

If that doesn't work, try opening the database in an "incognito" or "private" browser window. If you are still unable to access your EBSCO resource, contact your librarian.
