Literature Online (LION) has a new platform

New interface for Literature Online (LION)

A brand new state-of-the-art interface for the ever-popular Literature Online (LION) resource is now available via the eresources@cambridge A-Z. 

The new Literature Online (LION) features all the existing content – the more than 350,000 works of poetry, prose and drama, the ever-growing full-text journal collection, the vast library of reference resources such as biographies, encyclopedias and companions, and the exclusive audio and video offerings – as well as the bespoke and specialist search features and functionalities.

The advanced functionality and in-demand content has been paired with a modern search interface which is more intuitive and straightforward to use and navigate. Literature Online (LION) is now fully mobile-compatible, meaning you can use it on tablets or smartphones, wherever and whenever you need it.

One important change is regarding the My Archive feature of Literature Online (LION); an area of the service which allows you to create a personal repository for saved items and searches. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to migrate My Archive accounts from the old version to the new and so when the legacy version is deactivated you will lose the contents of your account if you have not created a new one.

With a fresh new look, and a more powerful search engine, the new Literature Online (LION) will provide users with a faster, more efficient search experience, while you will continue to benefit from the bespoke features and functionality that make Literature Online the premier tool for serious literary research. Both versions of Literature Online will be available, in parallel, until mid-2014 via the eresources@cambridge A-Z.
