E-Resources Availability

Any of the Library E-resources which have scheduled downtime or problems with availability are listed below.


OpenRepository will be carrying out essential maintenance to UDORA, over a period of approximately 4 hours on Wednesday 9th August from 7am (UK time).

During the period, UDORA will be in read-only mode. This means that viewing, searching and downloading content is unaffected, but logging in and submitting items to UDORA will unavailable until the maintenance is complete.

Thank you for your understanding during these essential updates, which are intended to ensure the security of UDORA. 



We are currently experiencing intermittent problems with Dawsonera titles when someone tries to download. Either the download is slow (and depending on the browser you may not see any progress icon), or the download hangs and times out after several minutes. The problem has been reported to Dawsonera whose IT team is investigating further. Reading online should not be affected.

The Library apologises for any inconvenience.

If you have any queries or issues with any other databases please contact us
