Upcoming library systems downtime – 19th March 2018

Starts 03:00am expected to finish 09:00am.

We need to upgrade our systems to ensure that we can continue to offer secure, robust and stable services.

During the downtime the following services will be unavailable: Library Search, Classic Catalogue, database listings, Library Accounts and Online Fines Payment Service.

You will still be able to return books to the library but it will not be possible to renew or borrow books.

If you need to search for material during the downtime you can find physical stock by using COPAC. You can also use Google Scholar to search for articles and access them using the "Institutional login" option on the publisher platform (although please remember that we do not have access to all articles).

Please see accessing e-resources during downtime for direct links to common eResource platforms that will continue to work throughout the downtime.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please let us know if you have questions or comments (
