Answer

If you are seeing a lot of traffic coming from 174.132.16.36, that is our Link Checker. It is run every Saturday morning and checks the validity of all links in certain box types in LibGuides & CampusGuides:

  • Links & Lists or Simple Web Links boxes
  • Books from the Catalog boxes
  • RSS Feeds & Podcast Feeds boxes
  • User Submitted Links boxes
  • Interactive Polls boxes
  • Dates & Events boxes

If this traffic is causing problems for your network or server, we can prevent those URLs from being checked. Just email support@springshare.com with a list of domains and request that they be added to the exclusion list for the link checker.

    This site is shutting down by, if not before, March 31, 2018.

    LibGuides v1 servers are also shutting down at that time.

    See LibGuides v2 documentation instead.
