Eresources downtime on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd April

hazard warning

Downtime of the Soulsby Data Centre, West Cambridge, for essential electrical work this coming weekend – Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd April 2016 – means that all online library services will be unavailable during the period of downtime.

This includes the library catalogues (LibrarySearch and LibrarySearch+) and the University Library website, so it will not be possible to access ebooks, ejournals, or databases via that route.

However, access (including off-campus) to online resources will be available directly from those publisher websites that offer ‘Shibboleth’ or ‘Institutional login’ options (look for the ‘Login’ or ‘Institutional login’, ‘Federated Login’, or even ‘Your Account’ or ‘Sign in’ links):

  • If you are asked for a Region or Group, please select ‘UK Access Management Federation’/’UK Federation’.
  • When asked for your Institution, please select ‘University of Cambridge’.
  • You should then be taken to the Raven login page.

(Note regarding SciFinder: please login as if you are off-campus).

Manual borrowing and return of books will be possible in the Chemistry Library; instructions are available next to the machine.

We apologise for the inconvenience.
