There is currently a couple of issues that occur when accessing the OnePetro database.
The first is that when you follow the link from the database list to OnePetro and enter your RGU username and password you may be taken to one of these screens:
On Internet Explorer
On Firefox click I Understand the risks, then add the exception and finally confirm security exception.
On Internet Explorer click continue to this website.
If you are taken to these screens you are still able to get access to OnePetro by following these steps.
This should give you access to the resource.
The second problem is that OnePetro, once you are logged in, appears to intermittently forget those log in details and therefore not allow you to download documents.
This problem is not consistent and you may not experience it but you can tell if you are logged in by looking at the very top of the screen. If it says via Robert Gordon University you are logged in:
If it does not say via Robert Gordon University you have been logged out. We have found that reloading the screen or closing the window down and logging back can often fix the problem and give you access to the documents.
Both of these issues have been reported and the library and IT services are looking in to these problems. We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.
