Science Direct access

by Debbie

We are currently experiencing problems with access to ScienceDirect using Shibboleth (aka UK Federation). For the moment, the best option is to use the Virtual Private Network (VPN) for off-campus access. Details on the VPN can be found here.

We’re testing a new format for our e-journals list. The new format should make it easier to find journals by subject or publisher, as well as allowing you to check SFX for details of what our subscription covers. For more details of the changes, please see the announcement on the library webpage.

You can access the new version here.

As ever, we’re looking for your feedback – please send any comments you have to Owen Stephens.
