MIMAS – service problems

Service problems on the mimas.ac.uk domain mean that access to the following services may be currently unavailable, or only intermittently available:

  • Census Dissemination Unit
  • Jorum
  • Zetoc

Access to the Web of Knowledge service was briefly interrupted earlier today, but has now been re-instated. A further update will be provided once MIMAS has confirmed that the service problems have been resolved.

Jorum User – Shibboleth authentication now active

Authentication for NTU staff members to enable them to access learning object materials in the Jorum repository has now been activated. Athens based authentication to the service will be withdrawn by EDINA on 31 July 2008. Individual user registration is required to use the service. Staff members who have previously registered using their Athens credentials will need to re-register to use the service using Shibboleth based authentication. Detailed information, an illustrated walkthrough, and a brief guide to the registration process, is provided in the relevant section of the eServices Support Materials wiki. [To emphasise: the Jorum resource is intended for use by teaching staff; and is not open to individual student use].
