At the end of last week a number of users had problems accessing ScienceDirect from off campus. We believe that this issue is now resolved. Please do let the Library know if you still have problems.
From 17/10/2014 :
There have been a number of problems accessing ScienceDirect from off campus today.
A few different error messages are being shown to users trying to login.
This has been reported to the supplier, and we're waiting for a reply and resolution.
In the mean time, if you see an error message, either try refreshing the page (F5) or using the back button in your browser to go back to a previous page and try again.
Apologies for the disruption to this service. We will report further when we know more.
