A-Z lists are back!

by Katharine Thompson

MetaLib is back – but A-Z lists are down!

by Katharine Thompson

Well, the good news is that MetaLib is back up and running again, the bad news is that the A-Z list on the Databases and E-books page is not working properly. You can view the list, but if you click on any of the links you get an error message.

IT are busy again trying to fix this.

In the meantime you can use MetaLib or the library catalogue to access both databases and e-books. If you have any problems getting access to any of our resources please contact us, or speak to our colleagues on the Helpdesk.

Please note that the A-Z list on the e-journals page is not affected and is working.

We will let you know when normal service resumes.

MetaLib is poorly

by Katharine Thompson

We don’t have access to MetaLib at the moment. Our IT people are investigating the problem and we should (hopefully) have everything up and running again by tomorrow if not sooner.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
