Off-campus access to the Wiley Online Library service (previously Wiley InterScience) is now available by university username and password. Access details have been updated in eSearch and SFX. A new and improved remote and metasearch configuration for Wiley Online Library has been enabled in eSearch.
Wiley journals are now made available through the integrated Wiley Online Library platform. All links from SFX to Wiley journals have been redirected to this new location to ensure continuity of access. Wiley are in the process of enabling Shibboleth based authentication for NTU for off-campus access to Wiley titles. As well as being able to customise the interface display (by the inclusion of an NTU logo, which links back to the NTU web site), Wiley now makes full-text entitlement much more transparent to the visitor. On the Wiley InterScience platform, entitlement was only confirmed at the point of an individual full-text request, and there was no view within the platform which made clear which issues of a particular journal were available as part of the subscription range. The Wiley Online Library now incorporates a padlock graphic display to indicate which issues are ‘locked’ and ‘unlocked’ in full-text – see illustration below:
The Synergy Blackwell platform was withdrawn from service as scheduled at the end of last week, and all content migrated to the Wiley InterScience platform. All links to Synergy ejournal content (including SFX links) will automatically redirect to the new platform – but these will only resolve to the Wiley InterScience homepage, rather than direct to the individual ejournal title. From the homepage, it will be necessary to a ‘Publications title’ search for the required journal. (SFX links will be updated to link directly to Wiley InterScience shortly).
To clarify the licensing constraint on simultaneous use of journals on the Wiley Interscience platform, the following prompt has been added to all WI hosted titles in SFX:
Please note: Access to Wiley Interscience journals is limited to one person viewing any one volume of a journal at time
