nuclear-2136244_1920

The Betty and Gordon Moore Library is pleased to announce that Release 3 titles from two complementary, born-digital ebook collections, IOP Expanding Physicsand IOP Concise Physics are now available for registered Cambridge staff and students. These titles were published online during the academic year 2016-17 and serve the needs of both undergraduates and researchers; they are hosted on the the IOPscience platform.

IOP ebooks allow unlimited concurrent usage and are available on and off campus (with a Raven login). The titles are published in HTML, PDF, and EPUB formats, and can be downloaded or read online.

The 70 new titles are searchable in iDiscover and you can also find a list of the titles in both Release 3 collections here. These new titles complement earlier owned and accessible published titles in Physics from Releases 1 and 2.

ebook-2467267_1920

The Library provides access to ebooks via a variety of different platforms. One of these, MyiLibrary, is going to shut down in late April. The ebooks we own on this platform will be migrating to another site, Ebook Central, on Wednesday 25th April 2018. Ebook Central offers many excellent features, meaning you should have an improved experience when accessing the migrated ebooks on this platform.

After the migration, you will still be able to access the e-books as normal via iDiscover.

Is there anything you can do to prepare?

Patron bookshelves, notes, bookmarks and highlights will not migrate to Ebook Central. If you use these features and you want to save your bookshelf history and notes then please follow the advice below.

How to resolve connection failure & timed out error messages

Really useful advice if you ever cannot access an eresource. Give it a go and let us know how you get on.

ejournals@cambridge

Connecting via EZproxy links

Some users have reported seeing error messages when connecting to resources via EZproxy links, both on and off campus.  Usually these links are in iDiscover or in the ejournals A-Z.  Over the next several weeks we are aiming to upgrade our EZproxy server, which we expect to have a beneficial effect regardless, and will be the first step towards resolving the issue.

Typical messages users have reported are: “Connection to libsta28.lib.cam.ac.uk:2048 was interrupted while the page was loading”, “This site can’t provide a secure connection” or a time out message. As we do not have a solution now, we offer the following work-arounds.  If none of these work for you, please report the issue using the form here.  Thank you for your patience.

These steps should be followed in order to regain access:

  • Clear all the cookies, browsing history and cache of your browser and restart…
