British Library cyber attack

Outside of the British Library

The British Library experienced a cyber attack earlier in November. As a result, new staff requests for digitised journal articles on a resource list may be delayed, as we source these from the BL. Submit your requests as usual- we'll let you know if you need to consider an alternative.

**The British Library says that the cyber-attackers are likely to have copied some customer data. At the moment it is not possible to change your British Library password on their website.  If you use the same password elsewhere, we recommend changing it.**

Our inter-library requests are unaffected.

If you use BL services or collections, this handy blog post from the Bodleian shows you some useful workarounds.
