Discover@Bolton: access restored but may be intermittent

October 13, 2016 by

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.

In the meantime, our electronic resources are still working.

New! Guide for Research Support

October 7, 2016 by

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.
