Access *restored* for Web of Science, Jrnl Citation Reports, Essential Sci Indicators

Update April 5th - Access has been restored to all affected resources. You can access the resources as normal via the relevant links in the library catalogue. We're currently experiencing access problems with Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports, and Essential Science Indicators. For Web of Science, the interface can still be searched, but there's no guarantee that content in search results will be as comprehensive as it should be. Journal Citation Reports and Essential Science Indicators are both presenting login screens and aren't authorising us at the moment. Technical support for the resources has been contacted, and they are currently working on fixing the issue. We'll update this blog post as events warrant. Apologies for any inconvenience!

They note the various meetings of the organisation during the years it was active and those who were involved in the organisation.  The first entry in the first minute book is a circular announcing a meeting on March 4 th  1931 “to further consider the matter of setting up an organisation which will embrace every section of Irish Agriculture and avoid po
