Login issues with ScienceDirect


I think it’s safe to say that January 2015 has been one of the busier months for a while in terms of resource access issues…! This time, we seem to be experiencing issues with logging in with ScienceDirect. It has come to light that once you have logged in via the University of Bolton electronic resources login page, an additional screen can be seen which asks you to chose your institution. The screen that you will see looks like this:

It is not known when this appeared, but other universities have reported a similar issue, and have been in contact with the provide for further advice. So, in the meantime, if you see this box appear, just close the box by clicking on the cross in the top right-hand corner of this pop-up. Failing, that follow the link to “University of Bolton” until you are taken to the resource.

Apologies for this rather bizarre issue (it’s a new one for me, too!) and keep checking this blog for further news. If you have any difficulties in accessing electronic resources, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Subject Help Desk, either by e-mail, by phone on 01204 903404 or in person.
