Introduction to information for Department members only

This section of the website [beyond this page] contains information that is mainly of interest to Department members. Some of this can only be accessed via Raven log-in box at the top right of the website.

These pages mostly replace those previously available on the Camtools site for Department members : only information with strictly limited access remains on Camtools : a list of what remains, and how to access the site, can be found below.

VERY IMPORTANT : Pages that are 'behind' the Raven interface cannot be seen in the navigation lists on the left-hand side of 'local' pages until AFTER you have logged-in at the top right of the website.
