Website improvements

Improvements were made to our website in Nov 2015 to improve user experience for account holders. We added multi-faceted search to the Catalogue, placed all subscriptions in one place, and all account details in one place.

Account holders may also notice we have responded to subscription management queries and programmed notifications to assist, including of expiring agreements.

We hope these changes will help with your work, please let us know if you have any feedback in relation to the website by emailing Oisan Man, Web Manager.

If your queries are related to subscriptions, please contact the Jisc Collections Helpdesk.

Spotlight on Jisc Historical Texts

This month's beautifully decorated cover is from 'Love Lyrics and Valentine Verses, for young and old' edited by E. M. Davies in keeping with the spirit of Valentine's Day.  

This is just one of thousands of texts from the British Library 19th Century Collection which you can find at Jisc Historical Texts, part of the Jisc eCollections service.
