Printing from your own device / Printing from the web

As you may be aware the online WEB printing service has not been active for some time. It was necessary to turn it off until important security fixes were applied. Konica Minolta (our printer supplier) are responsible for this fix and it requires a technician to visit all printers. We hope that this will happen in the next few weeks.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but security for SGUL users and students is a high priority.

Having difficulties accessing an e-resource?  Try a different browser

If you've been having a problem accessing an e-resource (an e-book or database) it is worth trying to access it through an alternative browser (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari) to see if that resolves the issue. If you do come across a browser specific issue, please contact us to let us know, and we'll notify the service provider.

If you come across an issue with accessing our resources that is not listed here, please contact to let us know, or report it to a Library member of staff if you are in the Library.
