New eresource: SAE Mobilus international technical papers 1998-present

The University of Cambridge now has access to the SAE Mobilus international technical papers from 1998 to the present via this link.  Access is available also via Shibboleth login if coming to SAE Mobilus from Google, etc.

SAE Mobilus  is the new platform of the former SAE Digital Library and offers a much improved interface.  The University Departments of Engineering, and Materials Science and Metallurgy will benefit from the the SAE technical papers that have been peer-reviewed by experts in the automotive, aerospace, and commercial vehicle industries .

Users may browse the more than 58,000 technical papers on the latest advances in technical research and applied technical engineering information.   Written by the experts developing solutions and new technologies then peer-reviewed by three specialists to ensure credibility, SAE technical papers foster knowledge, collaboration and the exchange of ideas.

 

New e-resource: SpringerMaterials

The University of Cambridge now has access to the SpringerMaterials database via this link:

https://materials.springer.com/

Off campus access is via Shibboleth only.  Please use the “Log in” link top right of the SpringerMaterials home page, then click “Sign in via Shibboleth…”.  Ignore the Athens option and use the Find your institution dropdown/search and select “University of Cambridge ebooks service”.  This will prompt a Raven authentication page for you to sign in using your Raven credentials.   (We expect to offer seamless proxy access via HTTPS in due course.)

SpringerMaterials is a database for identifying material properties, covering data from materials science, physics, physical and inorganic chemistry, engineering and other related fields.  New to the resource is SpringerMaterials Interactive, a set of advanced functionalities for visualizing and analyzing data. Examples of these functionalities include interactive graphs, dynamic data tables, and side-by- side comparisons of materials/properties.

SpringerMaterials supports teaching and learning and research and development in the fields of bulk and fine chemical manufacturing, petroleum and petrochemicals, semiconductors and electronic materials, optical metals, ceramics, polymer synthesis and processing, and materials for fuels and energy application.

The University Library, working closely with the Departments of Chemistry and Engineering and the Betty and Gordon Moore Library, is delighted to provide the SpringerMaterials database after a trial and feedback in the first quarter of 2017 demonstrated its value to the science community in Cambridge.  An FAQ on SpringerMaterials is available here

Trial access: SAE Mobilus

Trial access is now available to the SAE Mobilus online library of journals, technical papers and standards in mobility engineering via this link.

This trial is only available on campus as it has not been possible to set up off campus via EZproxy and SAE Mobilus does not enable Shibboleth access for institutional trials.

The trial will end on close of business on March 31, 2018.

Please send your feedback on this trial to: cued-library@eng.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.

The SAE Mobilus platform includes over 200,000 resources covering a wide range of technologies surrounding the aerospace, automotive, and commercial vehicle industries.  Content includes aerospace standards, ground vehicle standards, aerospace material specifications, technical papers, eBooks, magazines, video, and journals.  An overview of the platform is available here.

Off campus access enabled for British Standards Online (BSOL)

Access to British Standards Online is now enabled for off campus users via this link.

Both the on and off campus links are available from the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z here.

Records for standards in BSOL will soon be discoverable in iDiscover.   Access via iDiscover will only be available for on campus users (as we cannot at the moment build the off campus link into the iDiscover records).

The University of Cambridge started providing access to British Standards Online from December 2017.  Unfortunately it was not possible to provide both on and off campus access at the time of going live.  BSOL could not be provided for off campus users via our EZproxy server and BSOL has not yet implemented Shibboleth.  The British Standards Institute expect to implement Shibboleth by the end of the third quarter of 2018.  Until they do, we can provide off campus via the above link, but regret we cannot provide both on and off campus access via iDiscover until we can enable EZproxy and Shibboleth with BSI.

If you have any question please write to ejournals@lib.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.

 

British Standards Online (BSOL)

The University of Cambridge now has on campus access only to the British Standards Online (BSOL) resource at the following URL

http://bsol.bsigroup.com/

Shibboleth access is to be implemented by the British Standards Institute for off campus authentication in the second or third quarter of 2018.  We are working on providing access via EZproxy in the interim.

Access is available via the Cambridge LibGuides Databases A-Z here

http://libguides.cam.ac.uk/az.php?a=b

And records for the standards in BSOL will soon be available in iDiscover and updated weekly.  NB only on campus users will be able to link through to the standards from iDiscover records.

BSOL is an online library of over 90,000 internationally recognized standards with application to a wide range of subjects, from environmental management to IT security, from construction to food safety.

Links to full text articles exist where the “Full Text” icon is displayed against a citation.  These links use DOI numbers listed in the records to link out to full text on publisher websites.  We are working with Elsevier now to enable linking via our OpenURL resolver to display links to our subscribed content during the trial access.  This should be available soon.

Further information on the databases being trialled in Engineering Village is given below.

Engineering Village, the essential engineering research database, provides a searchable index of the most comprehensive engineering literature and patent information available. Designed by, and for, the engineering community, this comprehensive, all-inclusive platform gives academic institutions, corporations and government agencies, access to peer-reviewed, deeply indexed, relevant and accurate engineering research content—all in a single, easy-to-use interface.

 

 

Ei Compendex is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world with over 20 million indexed records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines. Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus so engineers can be confident information is relevant, complete, accurate and of high quality.

Inspec, created by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), is one of the world’s most definitive bibliographic scientific databases, containing 15+ million records. Librarians of the world’s top universities have relied on the Inspec database as a trusted source for relevant, peer reviewed scientific content for over 40 years. Inspec can be supplemented with the Inspec Archive to extend coverage and contains close to 900,000 records dating back to 1898. Its records have been digitized and indexed for fast, effective searching and are enhanced with current-day Inspec Thesaurus terms and Classification codes.

Comprised of two highly specialized engineering databases, EnCompass is trusted worldwide for providing superior insights from scientific literature and patents targeted specifically for research in the petroleum refining, petrochemical, natural gas, and related energy industries. Started by the American Petroleum Institute in 1961, these databases are extensively indexed utilizing proprietary technology known as the Encompass Thesaurus. Both databases are updated weekly, with EnCompassLIT covering 1+ million records and EnCompassPAT 650,000+ records. With EnCompass, businesses can significantly improve the quality of technical information and accelerate research, maximizing the value of energy R&D dollars.
The EnCompass Thesaurus, 52nd Edition is available.

Engineering Village Patents give researchers the tools they need to take advantage of the scientific and technical information found within the United States and the European Union patent records. Whether preparing a patent application, tracking a technology, identifying a potential collaborator or competitor, or simply learning more about work that is being done in a particular field, patent documents are an essential source for thorough, successful research. The Engineering Village Patent databases contain 12.7 million patents filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and 4.4 million patents filed with the European Union Patent Office (EPO).
