Summon upgrade 29 May to 30 May- some services disrupted

Summon have recently informed us that they will be undertaking some updates that will result in system downtime for up to 24 hours from 02:00 Saturday 29 May to 02:00 Sunday 30 May.  

 This means that Summon will be available for searching, but some of the links may be unavailable. The E-Journals Finder will also be unavailable during this period.   Open laptop

 If you have been planning to use Summon for research the weekend of the 29- 30 May, we would recommend downloading any articles or chapters you will need from Summon before the outage, so that your studies are not impacted.  

 There will still be some access to E-resources via the Enterprise Catalogue  (for eBooks) and the A-Z database (for journals, articles, eBooks and databases). However, the A-Z database list is not a definitive list of our resources, so please do access and download anything you think you will need beforehand.  

As always, please do contact the E-Team at or via our e-resources problem report form, if you have any concerns or queries.  

We apologise for any inconvenience this outage may cause.
