As of January 12th 2017, all ebook content previously hosted on ebrary has moved to Ebook Central. This includes ebooks purchased by ebooks@cambridge and faculty/departmental libraries and ebooks made available through the ebrary DDA scheme funded by the UL.

What will happen to links to ebrary?

Existing links to individual ebooks on ebrary and to the platform itself now redirect seamlessly to Ebook Central. So links within iDiscover, Moodle or other platforms will take you to Ebook Central. We have tested a number of links to confirm this, but please let us know if you find any that are not redirecting correctly.

e-EROS Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis

We hope this database will be of use to chemists.

ejournals@cambridge

The University of Cambridge now has access to the important reference work for reagents and catalysts for the study or organic synthesis, e-EROS Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis.

The Encyclopedia can be accessed via this link or via the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z.

e-EROS gives detailed information on more than 4,500 reagents and catalysts, and every year more than 200 new or updated articles are added in order to keep the Database up-to-date.

A representation of quite a small molecule: an isomer of the alkane C16H34. Possibly the simplest molecule that can never be made.

Access has been enabled by collaboration between the University Library, the Betty and Gordon Moore Library and the Department of Chemistry Library.

Review of 2016 programme

Fascinating reading!

23 Research Things Cambridge

Welcome to the 23 Research Things Cambridge blog! For those of you who haven’t been here before, 23 Research Things ran for the first time in Cambridge between October and December 2016 and we had lots of lovely people taking part with their blogs, video views, comments and much more.

So, we’ve taken a look at all the stats that everyone generated and combined them with all the lovely feedback and other data that we got from participants and put it all into a snazzy report. If you want to read the whole report, which includes details on how the programme was developed, check it out here.

For everyone else, here are some of the more interesting facts!
