It’s now \september 1929 and enduring trouble with nineteenth century website YET AGAIN.
Have borrowers cards been given new numbers lately, or been updated in some other way?
No change to borrower cards or numbers. Is there a problem? If so please contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Does this website ever get checked? OBVIOUSLY NOT! Many entries simply refuse to appear making searching frustratingly long-winded and fruitless. Lancashire papers are particularly bad. Please check the website and try to correct the many errors.
Hi Jean. Which website are you referring to.
19th century newspapers refusing to respond at all. Why?
It is working fine at our end. What is the problem???
It isn’t working at my end at 10.17 on March 30th 2018. Why?
Hi Jean. I have tested access and it works fine. If your library card number starts with an R, please do not type this in.
19th century newspapers refusing to connect today. Why? Was fine yesterday. Have always been problems with this site. Pity because it’s extremely useful – when it condescends to work.
seems fine today
Why has 19th century newspapers website become so hard to access? It used to be pretty good but today it won’t grant me access using my library borrow card number.
There seems to be a technical problem. This is being looked into Jean. Sorry for the inconvenience
