SOLO and OxLIP+ still down (30 May 2013): help for historians

As you probably have noticed, SOLO and OxLIP+ have been down for a while now. When you go to you will be offered COPAC ( as an alternative catalogue to locate library materials, i.e. get shelfmark and location. Unfortunately COPAC does not offer patron services such as book ordered, up-to-date loan information, online renewals, etc. Book returns and loans are not affected.

Please bear with us while the system is being fixed. Staff are working very hard on doing so but can’t give us an estimated time by when it might be fixed.

If you have any critical need to order or renew books, please get in touch with library staff (best before 7pm): LCam: 01865 277204; UCam (HFL Office) 01865 277264.

To circumvent OxLIP+, please note that I’ve bookmarked a anumber of key History ejournals at It’s of course not comprehensive but it might help.

Many apologies for the disruption this causes. Hopefully the IT bugs will be squashed soon.
