Service Upgrade

This week CiCS will be carrying out some essential maintenance to our eresources single sign-on service package (Shibboleth). For technical reasons, a consequence of the upgrade work will be a loss of customers' existing personalisations. This means that if you have created personalisations (e.g. saved searches or set up alerts) for some databases, you will lose these. This is unfortunate, but unavoidable.

The list of databases affected is available on the library webpages. It includes ZETOC and a number of EDINA services. We anticipate that ZETOC may prove the most problematic as this is used by many as a personalised current awareness service.

In all cases, you will need to set up your preferred personalisations again after successful completion of the upgrade. This will be announced on the service status page in due course.

Apologies if this work does effect you.
