Update  14th June 2017  8.56am

Access has now been restored.


******************************************************************************
14th June 2017  8.36am

CSD are currently experiencing problems with some systems that are affecting access to Library Online Resources (Including Discover, links to databases and access to online resource via the library catalogue.)

CSD are aware of this issue and are posting Service Status Updates on the CSD homepage.  We hope to have access restored as soon as possible.

If you are on campus, you can still access many publisher websites directly (with access to subscribed content) - google the resource needed.  Off campus, this can be replicated by accessing a web browser via the AppsAnywhere service.
