System maintenance scheduled 1 May 2015

The supplier of our resource discovery system, EBSCO, has planned to carry out system maintenance between 2 a.m. on Friday 1st May and 4 a.m. on Saturday 2nd May.  During that time you will not be able to access the A-Z list of electronic journals or use honniConnect to link to articles from the HONNI resource discovery service.  You should still be able to access articles provided via PDF or HTML links.  Individual Databases will remain accessible throughout although, while honniConnect is offline, it will not be possible to obtain information about library holdings.

We apologise for any inconvenience this my cause.  The system is expected to be fully functional again by 4 a.m. on 2nd May.
