Access to the Electronic Journals Service will cease on the 31st Dec 2009. This has been replaced by a service called ‘SwetsWise’. As a pre-emptive step clicking on the links to the Electronic Journal Service on Metalib will now redirect you to SwetsWise.
Also any articles that have been saved on ‘My EJS’ will no longer be accessible after the 31st December.
We’re really excited that the University of Huddersfield is the first commercial adopter of the Serials Solutions Summon product (view the press release).
Officially, we’ll be changing from MetaLib to Summon at the end of the current academic year (July 2010), but we’ll be launching a beta version of Summon in January and running the two services in parallel for the remainder of the academic year.
If you’ve struggled to locate full-text articles via MetaLib, you’ll find Summon makes everything a whole lot easier — it’s like Google Scholar, but better!
If you want to get a feel for how Summon works, there’s lots of info on the Serials Solutions web site.
Watch this space for more info!
There is a problem with access to content on the ‘New Scientist’ web site. Access is currently only allowed with a username and password. This can be found on the ‘passwords’ list accessible via the public folders on the University e-mail system. Once in ‘public folders’ navigate down to ‘All Public Folders’ then ‘Library Resources’.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Library Management System (Horizon) is currently down. The following library services have been affected by this unplanned downtime:
- library catalogue (inc. renewals, etc)
- telephone renewals
- all library self-service facilities
- inter-library loan requests
- room bookings
Due to essential site maintenance, access may be interrupted on the Wiley InterScience site on Monday 21st December, 9-10 am
We are experiencing problems accessing Creative Club from on and off campus. The publisher has been contacted and we hope to have the service restored ASAP
Ebrary is currently experiencing access problems.
There is currently a problem accessing Health Information Resources. NHS Evidence are currently investigating the problem.
