Access difficulties – ebrary and others

Apologies – the Shibboleth authentication system that is used for logging in to many of our databases is unstable and will be unavailable for all of today (Thursday 16 September). Some of our major databases also allow login using IP address – if you are on campus this will occur automatically e.g, Scopus, Web of Knowledge. If you are off campus you need to ensure that you have set the proxy on your PC/Mac so that this login route is enabled.

Unfortunately, our electronic books collection ebrary only works with the Shibboleth login option and will be unavailable while the Shibboleth problem persists. 

Apologies for any inconvenience caused – computing staff are working on resolving the difficulty.
