Lexis Library Access Problems Update

Following our messages last week about the problems accessing Lexis Library News content we wanted to update you with some changes we have made in response to the problem.

1) We have updated our access link to the main Lexis Library site, this means that when you click the news or international content link on Lexis Library you should get access to them.

2) We have added direct links to the new News and International Content sites to our database list.

See the new links here: A-Z database list.

However the changes made by Lexis Library to their website means that many of the direct links to newspapers, journals etc. have now stopped working.  Therefore we will be removing the broken links from LibrarySearch and we will work through getting working links re-added. This will take some time so if you are looking for newspaper or journal content from Lexis Library please go to the main databases (linked above) and search for them there.

We apologise for the problems this is causing and will update you with any further changes.

Update on access problems for Lexis Library news content

We are pleased to report that access to the news content on Lexis Library is starting to work again, although intermittently.

The news material has been moved to a new site and the problems seem to have been caused by this move.

The following link should give access, on and off campus, to the news material:

Lexis Library News

But there are still problems getting to the news material from the main Lexis Library website, particularly off campus, and work on fixing this is ongoing.

We hope that this link helps get you access while this is investigated and worked on and again we apologise for the inconvenience this is causing.

Problems accessing news content on Lexis Library ongoing

We are sorry to report that the problems accessing news content on Lexis Library reported on Tuesday are still ongoing. We are in contact with Lexis and they are working to resolve this and we will update once we have more news.

Finally a quick reminder that newspaper content can also be accessed via the database International Newsstream. To access this database please go to the database list and follow the link to the database, logging in if prompted to do so. You will then be able to search and browse for newspaper articles.
