During November Library Services ran a ‘Tell us what you think’ survey, which has now closed. The survey was a great success and we received 1,850 responses. Thank you very much to everyone who took part. The results, along with your feedback and comments will be put to good use, helping us focus on both our strengths and areas that we might improve upon.
The following students were randomly selected as the lucky winners of the £100 Amazon vouchers
The Library is now evaluating the results of the survey and will use them to identify the priority areas for development or improvement. We also hope to have further discussions with students to help us think about the appropriate actions to take as a result of the survey.
We will continue to promote the service developments and improvements that we make to your library services. Look out for more news and campaigns during the course of the year to see what we are doing as a result of your feedback.

We are pleased to report that results are once again being returned in e-Library Search.
Apologies again for any inconvenience caused.
Unfortunately, there is a technical problem with Explorit, which runs UAL’s e-Library Search.
No results are currently being returned for all searches.
This problem has been reported to the software providers as a matter of urgency.
Further updates to follow.
We sincerley apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Please be aware that UAL links are currently not appearing in Google Scholar. There was an issue reported by Google which has been resolved, but due to the timing that Google uses to update holdings, users will not see UAL links appearing in Google Scholar until Thursday of next week – 27 November.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused and our supplier is working with Google to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
Unfortunately over the last week there has been a problem with new (unregistered) users gaining access to Euromonitor Passport via the Shibboleth link that is on the Databases A-Z List: https://www.portal.euromonitor.com/Portal/protected.aspx?entityID=https://idp.arts.ac.uk/entity
This was reported to our supplier as soon as we were aware but it is taking their developers quite some time to get this problem fixed. However, we have received confirmation from their Tech Support that, in the meantime, if a new user wants to use Euromonitor on-campus, they can do so by registering their details via the IP portal login: https://www.portal.euromonitor.com/portal/account/login
The only thing to bear in mind is that, once the Shibboleth login is restored, you will need to re-register via this route. There shouldn’t be a problem with duplicate accounts.
Our apologies for any inconvenience caused and we will let you know as soon as the situation is rectified.
