What to do if FiNDit isn't working correctly for you


You may come across the following issue when trying to access the University Library FiNDit service. If so, please review the following:

Your connection is not secure  |  Access eResources directly

"Your connection is not secure" message - what does this mean? And how do I fix it? 

Due to an update, you may notice that when you go to a website provided by the Library, you may see something like the following warning:


If the warning message contains the 'ipacez.nd.edu.au' or 'library.findit.nd.edu.au' text/url, please proceed through the warning by:

  1. Clicking on the Advanced button somewhere in the message
  2. Then 'Proceed...' through to the site
    (Please note that Firefox requires users to 'Add Exception' and then 'Confirm Security Exception')


Access eResources directly

In the meantime, you can access electronic resources directly via the University Library's eResources list or by browsing the Subject Guides
