Normal access to ScienceDirect content has been restored.
ScienceDirect is experiencing technical problems at the moment, you may need to use a workaround to access items in this collection.
Visit ScienceDirect at http://www.sciencedirect.com/
Click “Sign In” in the top right corner of the screen, then click Other Institution (note – for this workaround, you should not use the ScienceDirect credentials login box):
You will be shown a box “Search for your institution”, type University of Liverpool and click “Login”:
You will then be prompted to enter your University of Liverpool (MWS) username and password – note for Laureate based programmes, please supply your UoL (MWS) username and password, not your Laureate/LENS login. You should be re-directed to ScienceDirect.
for further details please see http://liveresources.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/downtime-sciencedirect.html For any difficulties using the above workaround please contact your Librarian.
