PubMed Not Functioning Correctly

UPDATE, as of 1pm (2/12/18): The errors appears to have been fixed and PubMed appears to be functioning normally.

Original post (11:10am): PubMed is having issues when clicking on citation for abstract page. Reports are widespread on Twitter: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23pubmed, so it is not unique to UTHSC.

We have contacted PubMed support, they are working on it!
