A scheduled system maintenance period for the Box of Broadcasts platform will begin Monday 31st May 2021 at 07:00. The provider advises that the service should be considered ‘at risk’ during this time.
THE ON-CAMPUS AND off-campus access URLs for WGSN (World Global Style Network) have been updated in the resource’s Find Databases listing, to align with the company’s latest ‘best practice’ guidance.
A new Registration Guide (May 2021) has also been made available through the Find Databases listing, which updates guidance on how to create a new WGSN account and how to reactivate an existing account.
The library is discussing with the WGSN technical team and with Digital Technologies the options for migrating authentication for the WGSN service over to the NTU Single Sign On service. Further updates will follow on this potential development as those discussions progress.
THE LIBRARY IS working with the technical team at Mintel to re-establish authenticated access to the platform, which is currently unavailable.
Attempts to log in to the service result either in further authentication challenges or an on-screen error message.
A notification, alerting students and staff to the issue, has been added to the Mintel listing in the Find Databases service.
A further update will follow once access is confirmed as restored.
