    IT and Information Services tell us there is a problem affecting some computers across Goldsmiths (mostly Macs). This is to do with a problem with Domain Name Server settings (DNS). The result is that cannot be accessed, although other web sites may load correctly.

    If you can't see, but everything else is working, you should reset the DNS settings on your computer manually to:  and

    If you need help doing that, contact the IT helpdesk or if it's a laptop - take it along to them. is running normally and is stable.

    Shibboleth problems?
    by Pete Roberts - Monday, 5 October 2015, 4:23 PM

    Shibboleth logoWe've had a few people reporting Shibboleth problems with the Talis Reading lists to us (here in TaLIC), possibly because our name is similar.

    Shibboleth is an identity management system which allows you to log in to services such as Box of Broadcasts or the Talis Reading lists system. If you encounter a problem logging in with Shibboleth, you need to contact IT and Information Services. They look after identity management, we can't help in TaLIC.

    In case there's any confusion, TaLIC are the Teaching & Learning Innovation Centre and Talis is the company that run the reading list system. For Talis queries, the library is your first port of call.

    Hope that helps!
