Westlaw – off-campus access reinstated

ACCESS TO WESTLAW from off-campus has been re-enabled in the library’s Find Databases service.

Off-campus access is available once again by university username and password (with access on-campus remaining direct).

The reported problems with the university’s preferred authenticated access route to Westlaw are continuing, but the library has been able to establish an alternative authentication method pending the resolution of these problems.

THE ACCESS PROBLEMS affecting the Westlaw platform, reported on 31 October, are ongoing.

It has been possible this afternoon to reinstate on-campus access to Westlaw (which is now direct from any device connected to the university network); off-campus access is not yet available, but will be reinstated as soon as possible.

THE LIBRARY IS working with the technical team at Westlaw to resolve a problem that is currently preventing login to the Westlaw platform.

Access requests from both on-campus and off-campus are currently resolving to an error page. A further update will follow once the issue is confirmed as resolved.

Westlaw’s International Materials: intermittent access issues

There is currently an ongoing issue when trying to access International Materials from within the Westlaw UK database both on and off campus.

Some users may get the following message when trying to access: “All available seats are currently in use…”

As this is an intermittent problem, further attempts to access may be successful.

The library is currently awaiting a reply from the database provider about this issue.
