E-Resources Availability

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

Elsevier Science Direct

Access to these journals is currently unavailable. We are working with Elsevier to resolve the issue as soon as possible.



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.


Ebrary titles are not available at the moment either through the Library Catalogue or directly through the platform. The Library is working with IT Services and the supplier as a matter of urgency to resolve this.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

SAGE journals

SAGE have now fixed the issues we’ve been having with the new platform. You should be able to access articles via Ezproxy and articles that are subscribed to should show the green ‘unlocked’ symbol.
