Trouble accessing some electronic resources

Having trouble accessing electronic databases? Getting an error message? It’s been brought to our attention that there are issues accessing Westlaw UK and LexisNexis.

There has been a severe outage reported by Open Athens which looks to be affecting access to some of our electronic resources.

Error messages will appear when you try to access – we are looking into this – keep trying and contact a Library staff member if you are unsure.

KeyLinks, our upgraded reading list management system, is now available!

With KeyLinks you can quickly create a list of resources for your students containing books, eBooks, book chapters, journal articles, links to webpages, and much more. Your reading list (available per module) lives in the module information area on Canvas and can be updated anytime. It can be filtered on tags that you choose to add e.g. topics/weeks etc. and provides an easy way for your students to access essential and recommended readings. (All existing reading lists, notes and tags on our old system, Rebus:List, have been transferred to KeyLinks). There is a user guide and we will be running workshops and demonstrations to support academic staff. If you have any questions about the upgraded system, or if you are new to reading list management software, please  contact your Academic Liaison Librarian or use the online LJMUHelpMe form. For further information please see Reading list service.
