Problems accessing some e-resources

There is currently an issue with one of the authentication systems we use to authenticate users. This is not our primary authentication system and only a relatively small number of links are affected, but you may find that you encounter error messages with some links.

Open laptopThe links that are currently problematic, are identifiable by the prefix we are using in the weblink. It may look like this- We are working as a matter of urgency with the company who manages this authentication system to resolve the situation and hope to find a solution soon.

The majority of our E-resources are not using this system, and you should still be able to access them via the A-Z database, in Summon and on Talis. However, if you do encounter an issue, please do contact the E-Team at or via our e-resources problem report form, we may be able to provide you with alternative access.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
