Gale resources update: good news

by

Finally, some good news about Gale resources, which haven’t been accessible properly for a while. On-campus, when you click on the link to the resource, you may see a proceed button in the middle of the screen. If you do, click this button and enter your Bolton network ID and password if prompted to do so to access the resource. Off-campus, there is an additional step that you will need to follow. When you click on the link to access the resource, on the next screen you will be presented with a choice of two red links. Pick the bottom link: “Shibboleth users click here”. On the following screen, you will be prompted to enter your Bolton network ID and password and you will then be able to access the resource.

It’s unfortunate that this means there are additional steps to take, but hopefully you will now be able to access the resources. Just a reminder, here is the list of the databases affected by this change:

– Literature Resource Center

– MLA International Bibliography

– 19th Century British Library Newspapers

– 17th and 18th Century Burney Collection Newspapers

As ever, if you are experiencing any problems with accessing electronic resources, then don’t hesitate to contact the Subject Help Desk via e-mail or pop in to see us in the Welcome Zone of the library.
