Eresource Access and Library System Problems

We are currently aware of reported problems or planned maintenance on the following services:


  • OpenAthens services may be disrupted during the period 07:00am to 09:00am on 25 November 2014 due to scheduled maintenance by OpenAthens. (reported 20/11/14)
  • JISC Media Hub - Users will not be able to "type the name of your organisation" into the search box. As a temporary solution please use "Let me choose from a list" and select your Newman University. The UK Access Management Federation are currently working on resolving this issue. (reported 04/11/14)
  • Springerlink off campus access is not working. We are working with Springer to fix this. (reported 08/10/2014)


Library System:

  • The Library catalogue will be intermittently unavailable on Friday 21st November 20:00 - 00:00 due to planned firewall Maintenance work on our supplier's servers. (reported 06/11/14)
  • The problem logging into My Account on the Library catalogue which was being experienced by a small number of students, now appears to be resolved. We apologise for the difficulties you have had. Our suppliers are still monitoring the situation, so if it recurs, please let us know urgently. (updated 21/11/14)
