If At First You Don't Succeed...

Some users of Naxos Music Library have occasionally encountered a 'try again later' message when trying to access the site.

Access to this particular resource is limited to a certain number of simultaneous users, so if you receive this message it is because this limit has been reached at that time.

Anyone who encounters this problem should simply exit the site try accessing again at a later time.

For those using the resource, we ask that once you've finished your session on Naxos you either
  • close the browser window

  • click on the red Log-Out button at the top of the screen
Doing either one of these will ensure that you are not unnecessarily occupying a 'slot' and will enable access for our full quota of users. Thanks for your co-operation.

Get In With The PIN-Crowd

Any students that don't have their Library PIN should make sure to get the next time you're in with us; it'll make your Library-life a whole lot easier:
  • renew books from on or off campus
  • reserve books that are out on loan
  • save searches and individual references
  • see your loan history
The renew and reserve options help you manage your Library account and keep your record clear of fines. The search and loan history facilities can be a big help for assignment or research bibliographies - our records contain all the publisher and item details you'll need.

So if you don't know your PIN, just present your College ID card at the Issue or Information Desk and we'll show you the ropes...
