IT issues – Library Database A-Z down

We are aware that there is a problem with the A – Z List of Library databases today (3 June) .  IT Services staff have been notified and the server has been rebooted.  We are waiting to see if the list comes back up.

A workaround in the meantime is to Google the name of the database that you want to access, along with ‘login’, and you will usually get a hit with a link to the database login screen. Look for the ‘UK Federation’ login option and then you should be able to login with your UoN login.

Whilst this isn’t ideal, it should keep you going for now.

Moulton Research reaches Global Audience in the National Geographic!

Submitted by Wanda McCormick
NG screen shotIf you pop down to your local newsagents today and flick through the latest August edition of the National Geographic magazine, you will find a striking image linked to one of our ongoing research projects here at the College. The image was taken by a professional photographer who visited the College last summer to document our ongoing conservation work with the photogenic but incredibly elusive harvest mouse! We have been investigating the ecological habits of this most charismatic of creatures as a means of prescribing pro-active conservation measures to ensure its survival in our green and pleasant countryside.

With a global circulation of around 7 million, this truly puts Moulton’s research on a global stage! To find out more about this and other research activities we undertake, why not check out:

Rabbit survey photoHave you 15 minutes to spare?

Can you help us with our online survey?

We are currently trying to find out information about handling methods used by people who own and work with rabbits. Little research has looked at the different methods of handling rabbits and your answers to our questions will help add to our knowledge and to future guidelines that may be developed.

If you own, show or work with rabbits please fill in our Rabbit handling survey.
