Article search problem on SCC PCs

The HONNI Article Search (and other EBSCO resources such CINAHL) are currently unavailable on Student Computer Centre PCs.

Other than at SCC locations, access to these resources is unaffected.

we are working to resolve this and apologize for the inconvenience.

Journal print holdings not visible in the online catalogue

This problem has now been resolved (22/10/2015)


A new problem has arisen during the software supplier’s attempts to fix this problem of print holdings not displaying.  A print holdings table is now appearing but not all locations are visible and shelfmark and status are not displaying as expected.  Shelfmark appears blank and status is listed as ‘View Catalog Record’ for nearly everything.  The error has been reported to the software supplier as a matter of urgency.


A current problem with the HONNI catalogue means that print holdings of journal titles are not visible if titles are available electronically.

So, if you see only electronic holdings of a title in the catalogue, it does not necessarily mean that print copies are unavailable.  To check availability just contact one of the libraries.

The problem will be resolved as soon as possible.
