Anyone trying to access Springer articles from the Computer and Internet Law reading list at Magee may be experiencing a problem if off campus. Springer needs you to create a personal account to access full-text off-campus. On campus access is via the normal way.

For step by step help to register, see: the Springer Link pdf on the right hand side of the Troubleshooting Guide http://guides.library.ulster.ac.uk/soc/troubleshooting

To ensure that University of Ulster students have sufficient study spaces and to help maintain a quiet environment at a stressful time, entry to Magee Library will be restricted from Monday 28th April – Friday 23rd May.

You will need your ID card to swipe the sensor on the wall to the right of the revolving door in order to gain entry. If you can’t find your ID card, you need to get a replacement  from Academic Registry (you need it for exams anyway). Ask at the Issue Desk first, as ID cards are sometimes handed in to Lost Property.

If your ID card doesn’t work, reset it at the Security Desk in Block MD (main building). You will probably have to do this if you have not used it to gain access to campus rooms for more than 30 days or are usually at another campus.

Other registered library users, e.g. Step Up, Alumni or Sconul card holders should bring their Library card with them, press the buzzer above the swipe-card sensor and they will be let in by staff. Other members of the public with genuine research queries may also ask for entry at the front door.

We regret that students from secondary or grammar schools are not permitted entry during this restricted period, unless they hold Step Up cards.

We would ask for everyone’s co-operation to maintain a quiet building during the revision period. However, if you are being disturbed by others’ inconsiderate behaviour, please let Library staff know immediately and we will take action.

LexisLibrary is not working at the moment (nor is its sister database Nexis UK).

We’ve contacted the company and are awaiting a response.

Depending on what you are using it for, remember that there is often similar coverage in Westlaw. If it’s NI cases you need, try Bailii for recent material or we have the print copies of the NI Law Reports on the Library shelves, if you can bring yourselves to look up the paper versions!

 

*** please contact the library immediately if you experience further problems.
