New resource: The Vogue Archive

Access to The Vogue Archive is now available in Library OneSearch and eSearch. Access is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

A complete searchable archive of American Vogue, from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included, with rich indexing enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand names. The Vogue Archive preserves the work of the world’s greatest fashion designers, stylists and photographers and is a unique record of American and international fashion, culture and society from the dawn of the modern era to the present day.

Institute of Physics journals – new metasearch configuration

The metasearch configuration for the Institute of Physics platform has been upgraded in Library OneSearch (and in eSearch) so that the search results are retrieved and displayed directly within the LOS and eSearch interfaces (rather than remotely through the IoP site).
