We are pleased to announce that the problems accessing Compendex off campus reported here have now been fixed and you will be able to access the database as normal.
Compendex can be accessed from the subject list of databases (in the Computing and Engineering sections) and the A-Z list of databases. Simply click the link and follow the access instructions described underneath.
Unfortunately the problems with access to the EBSCOHost databases are still ongoing. A fix is being worked on and we will report back once normal access has been restored.
In the mean time you can see a workaround that will give you access at this blog post.
Unfortunately there is still an issue with the certificate when logging in to OnePetro.
While a resolution for this is being worked on you can find a workaround, along with a description of the problem, at the this blog post.
We thank you for you patience and please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
