OskiCat and the library proxy server (for accessing licensed electronic resources off-campus) will be unavailable from 2:00-4:00 p.m. on Friday, November 23, while we perform scheduled maintenance. This also means that UCB call number and availability information will be unavailable in Melvyl. For off-campus access, the VPN will still work.
Day: November 20, 2012
IET eBooks now available
We now have access to the IET (Institution of Engineering and Technology) eBooks Collection. The collection includes over 300 books published from 1979-2012. For each title, you can download individual chapters or the whole book as PDF files. Records for these ebooks will appear in OskiCat eventually.
Please note: The IET Digital Library includes ebooks, journals, and conferences, but we only have access to the ebooks on this platform. Our access to IET journals and conferences is via IEEE Xplore.
New platform for Springer journals and ebooks on Nov. 26
Springer journal and ebook content will be migrating to a new Springer platform effective Monday, November 26. You will automatically be redirected to the new SpringerLink site at that time. The new SpringerLink site is faster, easier to use, and optimized for most mobile devices.
Please note: Individual personalized accounts created on the old SpringerLink platform will not be migrated to the new platform. Users wanting to save searches and alerts will need to create a new account when the new platform is made available. The old platform will remain accessible through the end of 2012, in case you need to retrieve settings from your old account.
