Literature Online (LION) moves to ProQuest platform

From January 21, 2019 Literature Online (LION) is now available via the main ProQuest platform.  Access to LION on its now legacy platform will continue until 1 August 2019.

ProQuest provide some explanation of the platform change here.  The main advantages are that now LION can be cross-searched with the other resources on the main ProQuest platform, and content updates will be more in line with publishing (articles in journals from publishers with whom ProQuest has an agreement will be loaded into LION quicker than they were on the legacy platform).

The Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z has been updated so there are now two links for LION, one for LION on the ProQuest platform and one for LION on its legacy platform:

https://ezp.lib.cam.ac.uk/login?url=https://search.proquest.com/lion

https://ezp.lib.cam.ac.uk/login?url=http://literature.proquest.com/

Links to articles in LION from iDiscover are currently going to the legacy platform.  There are some article and book records that are not linking properly.  Please let us know if you encounter any bad links (write to: ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk).  Thank you.
