IRep records now being indexed by Google

Following the completion of some additional technical configuration, records in the IRep (the university’s institutional respository) are now beginning to be retrievable through searches in Google. This sample URL returns a set of records from the IRep containing a reference to ‘biology’.

eSearch to RefWorks export – now possible to export multiple records

An enhancement to the way that the export of records from eSearch to RefWorks is handled has now gone live. It is now possible to export multiple records from eSearch into RefWorks at the same time (rather than simply exporting individual records), using the functionality of the eSearch eShelf. The wiki guide to using the eSearch to RefWorks export has been updated to include the new feature.

Croner online services: a further delay

Further to the update of 13 October, detailed liaison is continuing with the technical staff at Croner to establish authenticated access to the new online Croner materials which replaced LLR’s now-withdrawn networked CD-ROM Croner titles. At present, LLR is unable to provide institution wide access to these online materials. It is hoped to have a resolution for these continuing access problems very shortly.

British Library Archival Sound Recordings – Shibboleth authentication now active

Access to the audio content of the British Library Archival Sound Recordings service is now by university username and password (using Shibboleth) on-campus and off-campus. Athens authentication to the service is no longer available. Links and prompts in eSearch have been updated accordingly. A guide to using Shibboleth authentication for this service has been added to the eServices support wiki.
