We would also like to advise the availability of Quick Reference Cards for Web of Science 5 to order, up to 100 will be provided free of charge per Institution. These can be viewed and downloaded online.
The new ‘Taylor & Francis Online’ site was launched yesterday. Unfortunately not all journal content has been transferred over from the old site. Taylor & Francis are aware of this problem and are working on it.
We are currently having problems with logging into LexisNexis when accessing via Summon or the e-resources list. You are able to access the site direct via http://www.lexisnexis.com/uk/legal/; click on ‘Academic Sign-in’, then ‘Athens sign-in’. We are looking into the problem. If you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
A message from the publisher regarding changes to FAME. If you have any questions about this, please email the library Business Team: email@example.com or FAME direct on firstname.lastname@example.org
In early 2010 a beta version of Fame was introduced with BvD’s new user interface. This beta version will become the official version in July this year.
You will still be able to access the old version, but after July we won’t be developing the software and the data will be frozen. We strongly encourage you to switch to the new version now to minimise disruption. We’re available to help you with this transition and help you migrate any pre-saved analyses across. The new software is more modern and clearer to use and takes advantage of recent developments in technolgy to improve your user experience.
Popular features are:
• Automatically saved history – your searches are saved so you can re-launch them even if you didn’t save them
• More flexible report and list formatting - you can click and drag items around to edit your lists
• More advanced and accessible Add-in technology to create customised templates
• Easier integration and customisation
These, and all other new developments, will only be on the new beta version of Fame.
SPRESIweb 2.9 is ready to be implemented. The upgrade will take place on Friday, June 10 2011 at 9 am BST; therefore SPRESIweb services will not be available at this time. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We have trial access to Bridgeman Education, a collection of 360,000 images from museums, galleries, private collections and contemporary artists all copyright cleared for educational use. Bridgeman Education gives you access to the visual culture of every civilization and every period from Prehistory to the present day across continents and civilisations. Access is on campus only via IP and the trial runs until the 1st July. For further information please email: email@example.com
Due to a severe hardware failure in one of the core network switches this morning, on-campus access to e-resources (and pretty much everything else!) has been problematic. At present, we’re expecting everything to return to normality tomorrow morning (3rd June). As far as we can tell, off-campus access hasn’t been affected as badly.
Please keep an eye on the Computer System Availability web pages to find out the current status.
