IHS databases: access problems resolved

Temporary access arrangements for the IHS databases OHSIS [Occupational Health and Safety Informmation Service], Lacors and CIS [Construction Information Service], introduced following technical problems on the IHS platform, have now been withdrawn.

With the technical issues now resolved, access is once again direct on-campus and by university username and password off-campus. Access details in Library OneSearch have been updated accordingly.

The temporary access details posted on the ‘Other Passwords’ page of the LLR web site will be removed shortly.

IHS databases: temporary access details added to ‘Other Passwords’ page of LLR web site

Technical problems affecting IP-recognition on the IHS platform first reported earlier this week are continuing.

As as result the temporary access URL details provided to LLR by IHS have now been published on the secure ‘Other Passwords’ page of the LLR web site and the information in Library OneSearch updated accordingly.

IHS databases: access temporarily unavailable

Access to the IHS databases OHSIS [Occupational Health and Safety Informmation Service], Lacors and CIS [Construction Information Service] is currently unavailable in Library OneSearch, following a technical failure on the IHS platform.

Access is normally direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus, but access requests for both routes currently resolve to the error message: ‘Unable to validate your IP address’

IHS’s technicians are working to resolve the problem, and in the meantime have provided a temporary access URL for Notttingham Trent University, details of which are available on request. (As this specially formatted URL grants access to anyone clicking on it, LLR cannot publish details on the openly accessible LLR site or in Library OneSearch.)

A further update will follow once it has been confirmed that this issue has been resolved.

New resource: LACORS

Access to the LACORS service has been enabled in eSearch; access is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

LACORS provides information about local authority regulatory and selected services in the UK. Topics covered include food safety and hygiene, health and safety, environmental protectionm and animal health and welfare.

LLR’s subscription permits one staff member or student to access to the resource at any one time – a note to this effect has been added to the eSearch information screen.
