Scheduled resource outage in August: ProQuest and Elsevier services (ScienceDirect and Scopus)


Some of our resources are subhect to scheduled maintenance over the next few weeks which will mean that the resources will be unavailable. The details of these are as follows:

– ProQuest: All ProQuest platforms will be unavailable for 12 hours from 3.00 a.m. on Sunday August 19th. This it to allow for maintenance on the platform infrastructure to be performed.

– ScienceDirect and Scopus: Both ScienceDirect and Scopus (and the Hub, from which both platforms can be accessed) will be unavailable from approximately 12.30 p.m. on Saturday 26th August to 7.30 a.m. on Sunday 27th August. This is to allow for the integration of a number of additional features to the products that includes new journals design for ScienceDirect and improvements to the alerts functionality for Scopus.

I’m off on holiday for the next few weeks, and I do hope that you are all enjoying your summer. I’ll be in September, with more electronic resources news at the start of the new academic year.
