(Note : Both eLibrary and the old Library Catalogue will remain available until Summer 2013!)

Access issues with Ovid databases
If you are trying to access Ovid databases (e.g.
more ...
Medline, EMBASE, PsycARTICLES, PsycINFO, CAB Abstracts, HMIC, and Social Policy and Practice) from within the Ask4 network, you may experience difficulties linking through to the Ovid platform. This is a known issue currently being investigated. Access to the Ovid platform via other networks should be unaffected.
ACLS Humanities ebooks
If you are using Internet Explorer errors are currently appearing when linking to ACLS ebooks, such as 'Oops, we aren't able to get to the page you requested...' As the message says, please copy and paste the URL into a new tab and it should then link to the ebook.
