The problems we were experiencing with Discover@Bolton yesterday have been resolved, and you should be able to access the service as normal. If you do encounter any further problems, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
The problems we were having with Discover@Bolton earlier this afternoon appear to have been partially resolved. However, you may find that access to the main search screen is very slow to load, or may not load at all. If this happens and you see what I’ve called the “Circle of Doom” this afternoon, try pressing F5 to refresh a couple of times.
This problem has been reported to the providers of Discover@Bolton and it’s hoped will be resolved as soon as possible.
We seem to be having a few problems accessing Discover@Bolton at the moment. We are working to resolve the problem and aim to rectify it as soon as possible. In the meantime, our electronic resources are still working. If you are unsure of which the best resources for your subject are, take a look at the relevant Subject Guide and head to the Databases, journals and articles section.
Undertaking any research, regardless of the level of that research, can be daunting. To help you on your way, we have created a Guide for Research Support which tackles many aspects of research, from using databases, accessing library services, referencing and managing research to sharing research, networking and measuring impact. The guide is available here.
We hope you find this of use, and remember, library staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Unfortunately the problems we have been having with logging into RefWorks have not yet been resolved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
On Tuesday 4th October at 8 a.m. for around 12 hours scheduled maintenance on the Emerald Journals platform will mean that some features will be unavailable. These include saving searches and accessing saved searches, new content alerts and adding publications as favourites. However, all journal content will still be accessible during this time.
If you’re wondering where the link to Reading Lists Online from Moodle has gone, it is now accessible from the Study Resources menu you’ll see once you have logged in:
Simply click on the Reading Lists Online option and search for your lists.
Access to MyiLibrary has been restored and you should be able to access the service as normal.
As befits a wet Monday, we are also having problems logging into RefWorks at the moment. We are working on a solution, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
What would the start of the new academic year be without a resource problem…? We are experiencing difficulties accessing MyiLibrary this morning. The problem is affecting all users and is currently being worked on by the suppliers. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
