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.
