Free-to-access electronic journals – collection extended
Following a major expansion of the SFX (Find it @ NTU) Knowledge Base earlier this month, a total of 16,734 new free-to-access electronic journals have been activated in SFX in the ‘Free e-journals’ target. There is some overlap of titles between this collection and some of the other free-to-access collections (such as DOAJ, Scielo and others), but the full list of 23,971 titles in the collection can be accessed here. Individual catalogue records for the new additions to the collection will be added to the Library Catalogue during the next electronic journal record update.
Science Direct – Shibboleth authenticated access enabled
Off-campus access to all of LLR’s subscribed materials on the Science Direct platform is now by university username and password (using Shibboleth). Links and prompts in eSearch and SFX have been updated accordingly. A guide to using Shibboleth authentication for Science Direct has been added to the eServices Support wiki. The remote and MetaSearch configuration for Science Direct in eSearch has also recently been updated.
