Problems accessing some eBooks continuing

We are sorry to report that the problems accessing some eBooks reported at the start of the week are still ongoing.

We are continuing to investigate the problem with the involved companies and will update you once we know more.

In the mean time just a reminder that there is a workaround to give you access.

After clicking “Available Online” in LibrarySearch you will be taken to the full record of the book. Instead of clicking the link in the “View Online” section go to the links section and pick the top link i.e. the one that says AHLS VLeBooks. RGU username and password required on and off campus. This should take you to the eBook.

Problems accessing some eBooks

We are sorry to report that we are currently experiencing access problems to some eBooks.

When following the link to access the eBooks users are being told “title not found”.

We are investigating the problem at the moment and have reported it to the involved companies and will update you once we know more.

In the mean time there is a workaround to give you access.

After clicking “Available Online” in LibrarySearch you will be taken to the full record of the book. Instead of clicking the link in the “View Online” section go to the links section and pick the top link i.e. the one that says AHLS VLeBooks. RGU username and password required on and off campus. This should take you to the eBook.

 

 

 

 

New LibrarySearch now live!

We are pleased to announce that our new LibrarySearch discovery service is now live.

LibrarySearch replaces the old Library Catalogue and it has lots of great features. It gives a more modern interface:

The new interface is optimised for mobile devices allowing you to use it more easily wherever you are (and this means we are discontinuing the Bookmyne app).

It has a more integrated search which will give you results from books, eBooks, articles, journals and more:

You can refine your results using options such as publication date, resource type, online availability and more.

You can sign in to access your account, place hold requests, renew books, and access online full-text resources.

Signing in will also let you use additional features such as

● Creating a favourites list
● Saving your search history
● Setting alerts for updates on new content that matches your searches
● Emailing results to yourself
● Exporting details of books, eBooks, and articles to resources like RefWorks

LibrarySearch can be accessed by using the search box on the library home page or going directly to the main search page.

LibrarySearch also replaces the old Journals List so if you are interested in finding out what journals the library has then please take a look at this guide.

If you have any queries or comments please email us at library@rgu.ac.uk.
