Update - Library online resources outage

The majority of our online resources are now available again, although we are still having issues with LexisNexis, WestLaw and ProQuest databases. When accessing resources on these databases you may see a ‘Request Timed Out’ error message. We have prioritised this problem and are working with representatives from these databases to resolve it ASAP.

In the meantime, if you are on campus you can still access the LexisNexis and WestLaw databases using the ‘Alternative access, on campus only’ link (see screenshot) on the Library Catalogue record:


We apologise for the inconvenience that this outage has caused.

If you need assistance, please Ask a Librarian.
