Completed: LMS and Readings Online unavailable Friday 14th December 2018

Update: LMS and Readings Online are available as normal.



The Learning Management System (LMS) and Readings Online will be unavailable during the scheduled LMS maintenance window on Friday 14th December 2018 7.00am – 5.00pm. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

We are encouraging staff and students to download any material required from Readings Online before the shutdown.  Staff and students will still be able to access digital content such as ebooks and journal articles via the Library catalogue and Discovery.  Simple instructions on how to do this are available from:

How to Access eBooks when Readings Online is Unavailable

How to Access Journal Articles when Readings Online is Unavailable

Please note this will only apply where Readings Online links to an ebook or a journal article that is available electronically via the Library’s databases.  If Readings Online links to a pdf of a print book chapter or journal article, access to the pdf will not be available and the pdf will need to be downloaded before LMS shutdown period.

The self-service function that allows staff to upload their subject readings to Readings Online will also be unavailable during the shutdown.
