IHS databases: access temporarily unavailable

Access to the IHS databases OHSIS [Occupational Health and Safety Informmation Service], Lacors and CIS [Construction Information Service] is currently unavailable in Library OneSearch, following a technical failure on the IHS platform.

Access is normally direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus, but access requests for both routes currently resolve to the error message: ‘Unable to validate your IP address’

IHS’s technicians are working to resolve the problem, and in the meantime have provided a temporary access URL for Notttingham Trent University, details of which are available on request. (As this specially formatted URL grants access to anyone clicking on it, LLR cannot publish details on the openly accessible LLR site or in Library OneSearch.)

A further update will follow once it has been confirmed that this issue has been resolved.
