Network and catalogue available again

The library catalogue, as well as access to the internet and to on-line resources has been restored. The library can now use a much faster internet connection without the random cuts to service we experienced with our old connection.

Printing services have not yet been restored: We are working on restoring them as soon as possible . Please contact library staff if you wish to print.

Again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused by the work on the network, and please contact library staff on 93408888 or if you experience any problems.

Catalogue access issues at the DML

The library catalogue and the on-line authentication system (that allows access to on-line resources) are currently unavailable. We hope to have the catalogue restored by monday 8th August. Please contact staff on 93408888 or with any catalogue queries. Access to the on-line resources (other than EBL ebooks) is available at the library.

Internet access for the library has been restored, and the wireless network should also be accessible (please contact staff if this should not the the case).

We apologise for any inconvenience these outages may cause, and we hope to resolve these issues promptly.
