Filed under: Library IT, [Resolved], [Service Alert] — Samantha Thornton @ 4:14 pm

Update 13/02/2019 11:51

Maintenance has now been completed.

Thank you for your patience.

Update 12/02/2019 11:40

The library search engine is still under maintenance.

When attempting to search the library, users are being taken to the library ‘classic’ catalogue rather than the usual library search.

The library is working to get this fixed as soon as possible and in the meantime there are workarounds in place here:
