Update on Dawsonera eBook access problem

We are pleased to report that the problem with accessing Dawsonera eBooks reported here has now been identified and fixed by the company.

As part of the fix a selection of titles are being reloaded to the system at the moment and over the next day or so which means a small number may still be unavailable at this time. However the company is happy to prioritize titles so if you encounter a book which you are unable to access please let the library know (library@rgu.ac.uk) and we will pass the details on to the company.

Problems accessing eBooks from Dawsonera

We are currently experiencing problems with access to some eBooks from Dawsonera. After following the link to the book from the library catalogue, and logging in when prompted, some titles are showing a message stating:

  • This book is coming soon to Dawsonera

Instead of giving access to the book. Although this is not happening to all titles and so you will continue to get access to some eBooks from Dawsonera.

This has been reported to the company and is being investigated. We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing and we will update you when we know more.
