From Wednesday 1st August 2018 all the Digimap Collections (except Aerial & Lidar Digimap) started new licences. This means that the first time you log in to Digimap after this date you will need to agree to the new licences before you can access the service.
This is a standard process that happens only once a year. It is a simple additional step to the login process and does not involve re-registering any of your details. Login to Digimap as usual and follow the prompts. You will need to agree to new licences for each Collection.
All your saved maps and data download history will remain accessible and unaffected by this process.
Digimap will be unavailable between 08.30 and 12.30 on TUESDAY 16th MAY 2017.
This is an extension to their routine “at risk” period (Tuesdays 08.30 – 09.30), since the work they are undertaking cannot be completed within the hour.
You will not be able to log in to Digimap or retrieve any data orders during this time. Data orders submitted before the downtime begins can be retrieved after 12.30 using the link sent to you by email.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this outage may cause.
We have set up a trial to DETAIL inspiration – an architectural image database – you can look at it on-campus here http://www.detail-online.com/inspiration.
“DETAIL inspiration, the database for architects is a new image and reference database with more than 2,400 projects from the last 30 years of DETAIL. The integrated search function, with numerous filters, allows your students and teaching staff to find precisely the right information. Each project described in the database is accompanied by DETAIL project documents, which can be downloaded as PDFs”
Please send any comments on this trial to Hugh Morgan, Assistant Liaison Librarian – Collections Management.
Can we fix it? – yes we can!
Building construction is one of the mainstays of the British economy. We can see it going on all around us – literally as far as BCU is concerned!
CEBE provides a range of courses to train all the various professions engaged in the construction process – Civil Engineering, Construction and Project Management, Quantity Surveying, Architectural Technology, Planning and Property Development. The extensive collection at Curzon Library supports the needs of those students.
There is a display of some of the Built Environments book collection on the ground floor in Curzon library until the end of term. The books can be borrowed, so if you are studying for a degree in a built environment subject or just thinking about a planning a home extension come along and have a look at what we have on offer.
For more information about resources for Built Environment studies have a look at the Libguide.
