Box of Broadcasts - planned downtime

Due to essential maintenance, Box of Broadcasts will be unavailable from the morning of Monday 11 June 2018 to Wednesday 13 June 2018.

Forward scheduling on the Programme Guide will be available up to Monday 11 June, and then will restart once the move is complete. Programmes broadcast during the down-period will be available retrospectively for most channels.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

ScienceDirect - problem downloading PDFs

Users of Internet Explorer 9 and Adobe Reader X (as on the student network) are currently unable to download PDFs using the 'Save As...' button while viewing an article online.

A workaround is to right-click the PDF link and select 'Save target as...'

Alternatively, using any other web browser should avoid the problem.
