Password issues

Writing about web page

On Friday 13th August 2010 and throughout the following weekend, IT Services are migrating all student email accounts from SquirrelMail to a new service called Live@Edu.

We have identified that a small number of student accounts have inadvertently had their passwords reset in the process of performing this migration. Students affected are most likely to be distance learning students or students who have never used a workarea PC.

If your account has been affected you will find that you can no longer sign in to email, or to the Warwick web site or to PCs in workareas. If this happens to you, please contact us on extension 51000 (or 024 761 51000 from off-campus or a mobile) and we will reset your password immediately.

Our apologies for the inconvenience this has caused. For more information on the email migration and the steps needed to access your email from now on, please see our email migration pages.

Request: Internet Explorer users please upgrade to latest available version

Writing about web page

Just like to alert users of the web browser Internet Explorer (commonly abbreviated as IE) to the importance of upgrading to the latest available version.

Our user statistics suggest that a surprisingly large percentage of students are still using IE6 the sixth major revision of Internet Explorer, a web browser developed by Microsoft for Windows operating systems. IE6 was released on August 27, 2001, shortly after the completion of Windows XP. A proverbial dinosaur where the internet is concerned!

If you are using the long outdated Internet Explorer 6 browser this site may not display or work correctly and you are putting your data and privacy at risk. To get the most out of the web, upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer for free directly from Microsoft right now. If you are at work and you see this message, talk to your IT department and ask them to upgrade the browser to secure your company data.

Download the latest version of Internet Explorer for free directly from Microsoft now

ATHENS login

Writing about web page

IT Services have finally switched off support for the old “war…” logins which means they will all fade & die over the next few weeks.

Everyone should be using their Warwick login as Athens login but there may be some entrenched “war…” users!?

If that includes you please set up your Warwick login as your Athens login – the “war..” Athens usercodes will cease to work over the next few weeks.

You will need to do this once on each pc you use to access electronic resources.

You can quickly set this up by following the steps below.
  1. Click “Athens setup” on this web page
  2. Select “I am from the University of Warwick” & ensure box is ticked to “Remember this organisation”
  3. Sign in with your Warwick username & password.

Check out the Library’s EndNote Web blog. This blog will be used to provide help and tips in using the web version of the EndNote reference management software.

EndNote Web can help you manage the references you collect for your assignment and automatically format your bibliography into the referencing style required (e.g. Harvard or Vancouver).

In the meantime, if you want to know more about the EndNote Web software, visit the Library EndNote Web webpages to help you get started.
