ScienceDirect downtime during November

Elsevier have announced that ScienceDirect and Scopus will be unavailable during the following period for scheduled maintenance:

Sunday 2nd November, from 1am GMT until 1pm GMT

Further disruption is expected on 15th November and we’ll post more details in due course.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience the downtime causes.

MetaLib/SFX upgrade on 14/Oct/2008

We’ll be applying a minor upgrade to MetaLib first thing on Tuesday 14th October. The upgrade to MetaLib 4.2.2 (SP 402) doesn’t add any new functionality, but will fix a number of minor bugs.

The upgrade work will be carried first thing on Tuesday morning and, if everything goes smoothly, will be completed by 8:30am. Whilst the upgrade is taking place, MetaLib will be unavailable.

Following on from that, we’ll be running a routine update of SFX. Although this takes longer to complete, SFX should be available throughout the update process.

As always, if you have any questions, please email
