All entries for the Land, Life and Leisure database have been removed from Library OneSearch following the discontinuation of the service this summer.
The Land, Life and Leisure service has launched a new interface this week. Improvements are restricted to the look-and-feel of the site and do not involve any functional changes.
The Census Registration Service manages the registration process controlling authorised access to a number of resources and collections including:
* Cathie Marsh Centre for Census and Survey Research (CCSR) (for the Samples of Anonymised Records (SARs), 1991-2001).
* Census Dissemination Unit (CDU) (at Mimas for the aggregate outputs and related geographical datasets, 1971-2001).
* Centre for Interaction Data Estimation and Research (CIDER) (for origin-destination statistics, 1981-2001).
* UKBORDERS (at Edina for digitised boundary datasets, 1971-2001).
Registration to make use of these services will also provide access to Economic and Social Data Service (ESDS) and ESDS International through the UK Data Archive.
Authentication for on-campus and off-campus customers wanting to register to use these services is now available through the Shibboleth framework, and links to the relevant databases have been updated in eSearch.
It is possible for customers with an existing Athens-based registration to transfer their registration to the new Shibboleth authentication system. Details of this process and a walkthrough guide are provided in the relevant section of the eServices Support wiki.
Hardware problems which have caused recurrent breaks in access to the Land, Life and Leisure service over the past few days are now reported as resolved by EDINA. Access is once again available through eSearch.
EDINA reported this morning that the Land, Life and Leisure database is currently unavailable due to recurring hardware problems. A further update will be provided once access to the service has been restored.
Hardware problems have affected access to the EDINA hosted Land, Life and Leisure service over the past few days, with access temporarily suspended at times. Access has now been restored.
Following a hardware failure at the host site, Land, Life & Leisure is now back in service.
