New resource: archival access (2007-2012) to three Nature titles

Full-text archival access for three Nature  titles has been enabled in SFX and Library OneSearch. The three titles are:

  • Nature (1476-4687)
  • Nature Genetics (1546-1718)
  • Nature Immunology (1529-2916)

The archival subscription for all three titles covers the ‘fixed’ period 2007-2012, and is independent from other current Nature  subscriptions.

Engineering Index Backfile – now included in Compendex

Records from the Engineering Index Backfile (covering the period 1884-1969) are now searchable in the Compendex directory of Ei Engineering Village, following an extension in LLR’s subscription to the resource.

The description of Compendex in Library OneSearch has been extended as follows:

Historic content from the Engineering Index Backfile (1884-1969) is now included in the Ei Compendex index

ECCO and EEBO – Library OneSearch connections updated

To reflect a recent change in LLR’s subscription profile, links to the ECCO (Eighteenth Century Collections Online) and EEBO (Early English Books Online) services in Library OneSearch have been updated to connect to the JISC Historic Books collection.

Through the JISC Historic Books service, ECCO and EBBO can be searched independently or jointly, alongside a collection of nineteenth century books from the British Library.

Access to JISC Historic Books is by university username and password, from on-campus and off-campus.

Westlaw – temporary access arrangements (22-28 August)

At short notice, Westlaw is carrying out ‘essential maintenance’ on its Shibboleth service: which means it will not be possible to sign-in to Westlaw using a university username and password between 22-28 August.

Temporary access arrangements have been agreed with Westlaw, and links in Library OneSearch have been updated accordingly.

Between 22-28 August, on-campus access to Westlaw will be direct (using IP authentication). Off-campus access will not  be available. On-campus access will only be possible using the links in the Find Databases service of Library OneSearch.

A further update will follow once Westlaw’s normal sign-in services have been restored.
