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.

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.
