Access issues with IHS databases

June 2, 2017

It looks like we are having a few problems accessing IHS databases at the moment (CIS, OHSIS, Specify-it, Engineer-it). These have been reported, and we hope they will be resolved as soon as possible.

The problem has been reported and it is hoped will be resolved as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

IHS access restored!

February 8, 2016

The problems we were having with IHS databases earlier this morning have been resolved, and you should be able to access these databases as normal. Thanks to IHS for ensuring that this was resolved in a timely manner.

IHS databases currently unavailable

February 8, 2016

It’s damp and rather miserable outside so why not add a resource problem into the mix…? We are having problems with IHS databases just at the moment, i.e. Engineer-it, Specify-it, Construction Information Service and Occupational Health and Safety Information Service. None of these databases are accessible. The problem is due to a server issue with the provider of the database, and they are working to rectify the problem as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience.

New CIS platform available

January 11, 2016

A new Construction Information Service (CIS) platform is now available, accessible from the main IHS page:

ihs old 11.1.15

The new platform, which is accessible from here, looks very different to the previous platform, but is easy to navigate, see an example of how it looks here:

cis new platform 11.1.16

You’ll have already logged in once you’ve clicked on the link on the A to Z list of electronic resources or the Resources by Subject pages, so when you’ve arrived at the new platform, you’ll be able to see that you are logged in as you can see “Logout” in the top right-hand corner.

If you have any problems at all, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Subject Help Desk.
