Library catalogue unavailable afternoon of 28th August

The library catalogue will be unavailable from midday on 28th August for the rest of that day. It will be available again on 29th August, but may be running "at risk". This gap in service is necessary for major administrative changes to the catalogue data.

You can still search for items in the library's collections by searching COPAC, a joint catalogue of the holdings of over twenty top research universities and institutes. You can use the Main Search screen to restrict your searches to Liverpool stock only.

Important news for RefWorks users

If you have created a RefWorks user account with a username and password you created yourself, you need read no further. If you used your ATHENS account to set up your RefWorks user account, please read on.

Funding for the UK ATHENS authentication system has now ceased. Those RefWorks users who used their ATHENS details to set up their RefWorks account should send an email to with your name and the email address you've used with RefWorks - library staff will then be able to re-set your username and password.

No-one will lose any of their references!
