A temporary workaround is to login to Athens through another Gale resource and then in the same browser session, open Chilton's in a new tab.

We have another temporary workaround from Gale. We will check the Athens links at the end of the month. For now, we advise adding this link below to your website in place of the Athens link. We tested from our office and this method is working. "Per the access team, this is a known issue that will be fixed with a platform update at the end of the month and require no extra action from you or your member libraries. However, in the 12-day interim, the team did create a temporary URL to use to keep access uninterrupted. This URL will use an access code of “swan” in place of a regular barcode authentication. Again, this will be only temporary, but the goal is to keep access uninterrupted to your members and their patrons."

The issue was resolved by Gale and Chilton's is now working remotely.

St Charles reported the same error message with Gale Legal Forms. We have a new ticket with Gale Case ID: 4295570. As soon as we have a solution we will update this Known Issue.
