I have located a resource I want to see but can’t view it: why not?
If a message is displayed telling you that you do not have the required permissions to access a resource, then this is probably because some resources on Nottingham Insight are restricted to individual users or groups.
Contact a member of the Nottingham Insight Team if you wish to discuss this further.
It may also be that you need to make sure you have the right software on your computer to view certain files. Visit our download viewer software page for more information on this and to download the relevant viewer software for free.
Can I contribute resources to Nottingham Insight?
Nottingham Insight relies on the valuable contributions of individuals and organisations to keep the site relevant and useful. However, you do need to be registered as an Advanced User in order to be able to submit resources to the site.
As these rights are granted at the discretion of the Nottingham Insight administrators, you should contact a member of the Nottingham Insight Team if you wish to investigate this option.
Note that individuals who wish to become Advanced Users will need to attend the relevant training course to ensure all data and information is submitted correctly and completely.
Why can’t I see the resource(s) I have uploaded to Nottingham Insight?
Once individuals have submitted resources for inclusion on Nottingham Insight, they are placed in a holding area whilst the site administrators check that all required information relating to a resource - such as metadata elements, access rights etc – are complete and correct. Only once this has been completed will the resource be hosted on the site.
If you feel that an unreasonable amount of time has passed since submitting a resource for inclusion on Nottingham Insight and its appearance on the site, then you should contact a member of the Nottingham Insight Team.
