Box of Broadcasts (BoB) will be implementing an upgrade on Friday 23rd June 2017 between 7-9 am that will resolve the playback problems experienced by clients using some web browsers. The fix will require some downtime for the BoB service during this interval.
This fix should greatly improve load times across affected browsers, including Internet Explorer, Edge and Chrome. It will however restrict support for Internet Explorer to IE 11, the only version still supported by Microsoft. Anyone still using older versions of the browser is recommended to change their browser or upgrade to IE 11 or Edge.

We will be upgrading our library management system next Wednesday 21 June between approximately 8-9 am. During this period, neither clients nor library staff will be able access to your library account, stock or shelf mark information, although you will still be able to borrow and return books. We apologise for any inconvenience resulting from this essential maintenance.
