- the right course alerts
If you log in with LGfL login and haven't logged in for a while, you will be asked to confirm your email address the next time you log in. If you get an error saying that a user is registered with this email address, this means you have two accounts and they need to be merged. Please email us to let us know and we can fix this.
Bookmark news pages
Each service area has its own news folder and you can bookmark direct links to these for subject-specific updates.
Search using speech marks
If you want to search for a particular document or phrase, place the phrase in "speechmarks" in the search box and the system will then only search for items that include all of those words.
Click a link - again
If you try to access any restricted content and aren't logged in, you'll be directed to the login page and asked to log in. After you have successfully logged in, you should then be redirected back to the content you were trying to access. If this doesn't happen, click back to go back to the page you were on before and click the link again. This also applies to any links from emails: once you have logged in, click the link again. You will remain logged in to IslingtonCS for up to 90 minutes after no activity.
Share links by right-clicking
