    I am so delighted that you found my great uncle’s invention the Petrol Cycle. The internet is so wonderful that each time I do a search for anything about Edward Butler I find there are people out there interested. I know very little about motors but as I search and read more it seems that his invention was well before its time in many aspects. The spray carbureta being one. The Science Museum in London has more information on him – not sure if The Science Museum counts as a motoring museum for your PhD – fo which I wish you all the best in your studies.

    Hi Pal,

    You’ve not offended anybody at all – we just want to make sure that your experience of using the library is as smooth and easy as possible 🙂

    There are two separate logins because at the current time we have 2 different systems and sets of software behind the scenes that hold the information about the library resources. The library catalogue search is unable to accept the university IT account log-in. However, the software that operates the search via the Digital Library can use the University log-in. We are very sorry for the difficulties and confusion this causes and there are plans to change this so that only the University log-in is required but as it is a significant piece of technical work I am afraid we do not have a timeline for this yet, but please be reassured that it is being looked at, and we thank everyone for their patience with this.

    I am unsure what the third account is that you are referring to? Do you mean that when you are looking at eBooks you are being asked to log in at that point, in order to save items? If so, this will be the choice of the publisher who hosts the eBook site. Unfortunately we do not have any control over the information they require from you, we just subscribe to them so our users can access their resources. If you let me know which eBooks you are looking at I can have a look at the host site and see what they require.

    I hope this has made things a little clearer. Please feel free to get in contact again if you have any more queries.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Pal,

    I work at the University Library and I am sorry to hear that you’ve been experiencing issues with logging into the library catalogue and eResources.
    Your library number should be on your student card, along with your student number. The library number begins 075.
    On the Library homepage (http://www2.le.ac.uk/library) there is a link the Digital Library off-campus login, if you log in here this should ensure that you remain logged in for your entire session.
    If you would like to let us know the titles of the eBooks that you have been having issues with at library@le.ac.uk, we’ll be more than happy to help.
    Good luck with your studies!

    Lauren Elmore
