Wednesday 18th December: Library System Upgrade 07.00 hrs – 10.00 hrs

A basic issue and discharge service will be running from the Service Desks at both sites while the upgrade is in progress.

Full service will be available  at 10.00 hrs.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Science Direct problems

We are currently experiencing problems accessing journal articles in Science Direct. Searches in both NELSON and Find My Reference only take you to the Science Direct front page, from where you have to search again to reach your specific article. Alternatively you can access Science Direct from our A-Z list of Databases.

We are working with our supplier to resolve this issue and apologise for any inconvenience it may cause.


Upgrade to Box of Broadcasts

The BUFVC have announced that Box of Broadcasts will be unavailable from 13th-23rd December 2013 as it prepares for a new launch with lots of new content and features.   Please consider this when planning your work schedule over the next couple of weeks.

Programmes set to record during the downtime will not be recorded although a full 30 day buffer of programmes will be available when the site returns, so you should be able to re-locate and record these programmes then.
