Happy New Year (and yes, we have a resource issue…)

January 6, 2017

I think it’s tradition now, isn’t it? New year; new resource problem?! Anyway, hope you’ve all had a lovely break and are ready to tackle the new term.

As befits the time of year, we are indeed having problems with an electronic resource at the moment: Taylor and Francis Online. The platform is experiencing technical issues at the moment that may be affecting access to articles. The problem is being worked on and it is hoped it will be resolved as soon as possible.

Changes to Taylor and Francis Online

August 15, 2016

It seems like a long time since I’ve spoken about any electronic resource developments, doesn’t it?! I’m sure I’ll rectify that at some point soon, but in the meantime, some news relating to one of our journals platforms, Taylor and Francis Online.

The Taylor and Francis Online interface has recently been upgraded – while I was on holiday, so apologies for the lack of warning! – so you’ll note that it looks a little different. The main search screen is easier to navigate, and the provider has improved the way in which it indicates the content that forms part of our subscription.  Do let us know what you think. We work closely with providers to ensure their products serve our community in the best way possible and are always happy to pass on any comments and/or suggestions.

I hope everyone’s having a lovely summer so far and are all looking forward to the start of the new academic year!
