New e-resources pages on search and discovery tools

Some really good information here on how to get hold of those all important articles, especially open access ones.

ejournals@cambridge

New pages on search and discovery tools have been added to the e-resources website.   These pages are intended to promote discovery of Open Access content and provide links and guidance to help users when they meet a subscription paywall.

The pages can be access here:

https://www.libraries.cam.ac.uk/search-and-discovery-tools

and are linked from the top-left box on the e-resources site.

The pages replace the “Articles and journals” page.

The iDiscover article search box has been moved to the first concertina box on the “Ask Cambridge Libraries” page.

There is also now linked from this page an iDiscover “Citation Linker” for article searching using ISSN, Title, DOI or PMID (or ISBN for books).

The pages comprise:

Times Higher Education

Unfortunately the app is no longer operational! THE is recommending that everyone accesses it via their website, from whatever device they are using.

ejournals@cambridge

The University of Cambridge now has an institution-wide licence to the Times Higher Education (THE).

Staff and students keen to keep up to date with developments within the higher education sector can do so courtesy of a new institutional subscription to the Times Higher Education (THE) magazine.

The University has signed a three-year deal that enables staff and students to read the magazine online. Faculties and departments are therefore requested to cancel any subscriptions that they may have with the THE to reduce overall spend across the institution.

This licence allows all staff and students to access a range of editorial services, including:

  • regular newsletter updates
  • weekly digital editions of THE magazine
  • unrestricted access to THE online and via its app.

Individuals can find details on how to create their account on the University Library’s THE page here:

They can also access this subscription off-campus and overseas, and

New e-resource trials page and feedback form

Information on trial access to eresources should now be much clearer thanks to the eresources team!

ejournals@cambridge

For University of Cambridge members, a new web page listing forthcoming, active, and recently completed trials of e-resources has been created here:

https://www.libraries.cam.ac.uk/e-resource-trials

This is linked from the main Cambridge Libraries’ e-resources site (https://www.libraries.cam.ac.uk/eresources) and includes a new “Eresource Trials Feedback Form”.   This form will now be used for all trials (e-journals; e-books; e-resources) to invite feedback from users of trial access.

Librarians who mail out to their Departments and Faculties can include their own library’s contact details if they prefer to have trial feedback sent directly to their library.   A few general notes of guidance around trials are provided in Information for Cambridge Librarians on eresources (Raven access).

The aim of the new page is to provide clearer information to end-users about what trial access is available and when, and the new form is intended to make the process of providing feedback simpler and more…
