Box of Broadcasts: don't lose your clips and playlists!
The library move to Single Sign-On will impact on users' Box of Broadcasts MyBob accounts. Once it has been implemented for BoB, an email will be sent out to registered users and this page will be updated. In order to ensure that your saved clips and playlists are not lost, you will need to merge your 'new' and 'old accounts. Advice on how to do this can be found here.
Digimap: don't lose your work!
The library move to Single Sign-On will impact on users' Digimap accounts. Once it has been implemented for Digimap, an email will be sent out to registered users and this page will be updated. If you are a current user, you will be prompted to re-register for a Digimap account the first time you log into Digimap after the switchover to Single Sign-On. Since your saved Digimap data is tied to your 'old account, it will not be possible to move saved maps over to your 'new' account. In order to allow dissertation students time to finish projects, and researchers time to complete work or export large data files, the old and new accounts will run side by side for a period of time. For further information, please contact Jane Haigh.

We think it's time to improve LibrarySearch and really want to hear what you think. To help gather information about your experiences using LibrarySearch, we'd like to ask you to complete a short, five-question survey. You'll find the link to the survey on the LibrarySearch homepage.
