MLA International Bibliography to move to EBSCOHost

The Modern Language Association (MLA) recently announced that in future it would provide its MLA Bibliography resource through the EBSCOHost platform only.   It had formerly not made such a restriction and Cambridge enjoyed access via the ProQuest platform which integrated MLA Bibliography with Literature Online (LION).

The move has produced some consternation in the publisher and library worlds, not least because of the disconnect with Literature Online.  The other disadvantage is the lack of indexing of EBSCOHost resources by Ex Libris in Primo, which means MLA Bibliography will not be indexed in our iDiscover.

ProQuest has issued a statement about this development here “Concerning the MLA International Bibliography Exclusivity with EBSCO” and the MLA has documented its move to customers here “Letter to MLA Bibliography Customers“.

The move for Cambridge will come into force in May 2019 when our access via ProQuest will expire.  We have secured trial access via EBSCOHost to 30 April 2019 to enable users of the MLA Bibliography to get used to the bibliography on its new platform and this can be accessed here or via the link on the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z.

If you have any feedback about this move please email ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.

 

Karger ebooks now available

ebooks@cambridge

karger larger

The UL, the Moore Library and ebooks@cambridge are pleased to announce that Cambridge University members now have access to all frontlist and backlist series and non-series ebook titles published by Karger.

Karger Publishers is a globally active medical and scientific publishing company dedicated to serving the information needs of the scientific community with high-quality, and in some cases award-winning, research-level texts covering primarily life and clinical sciences, alongside a variety of titles of particular interest to the history of science.

Our turnaway figures from Karger are high (between 800 and 1000 over the last 3 years), indicating a significant level of interest from Cambridge researchers across a wide variety of Karger’s ebook series. We will therefore initially be providing access through an Evidence-Based Acquisition scheme, whereby all Karger ebooks are made accessible to Cambridge users. At the end of the Evidence-Based scheme, most-used titles will be selected for purchase…

News from Science – new restriction to 10 articles per month

The Science journal platform has recently been updated and a restriction has been introduced on the number of  ‘News’ article that can be read each month.

This new ‘metered access’ is being applied to the University of Cambridge as the ‘News’ articles are content that is not included in the print publication and access is  not available for institutional subscribers.

The 10 news article limit will be applied to each IP each month. If you are using a computer on a network you are likely to share your IP with other users. Once 10 articles have been read by users on the IP the image above will appear.

Access to the journal content on the Science platform is unaffected.

Springer Nature Experiments

You may have heard directly from Springer that they have deactivated their SpringerProtocols platform this week.

All of the SpringerProtocols content is already hosted on SpringerLink  so there won’t be any disruption in accessing this content.

Springer are simply deactivating SpringerProtocols.com as they have developed a new and more advanced research solution Springer Nature Experiments.

Springer Nature Experiments is a free-to-use search tool  that has been designed specifically to find and evaluate experimental procedures and where the whole search logic, filters and metrics are tailored for research protocols.

Once a user has identified a SpringerProtocols protocol in which they are interested in Experiments, they can simply click on Full text or Download and will be taken to the content on its native platform SpringerLink.

You can also access the SpringerProtocols.com deactivation FAQS here.

Access to the SpringerProtocols content on Springer Nature Experiments is provided for on and off campus users via the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z link here:

https://ezp.lib.cam.ac.uk/login?url=https://experiments.springernature.com/

Unfortunately links in iDiscover rely on Ex Libris updating their knowledgebase which they have not yet done.  We have asked them to do this now, but until the changes are made, users linking via iDiscover records for the SpringerProtocols will be directed to the protocol on the SpringerLink platform (rather than on the Springer Nature Experiments platform).
