New resource: CIS (Construction Information Service)

Access to the Construction Information Service database has been activated in eSearch. Access on-campus and off-campus is by Athens username and password. The resource is described as follows:

The Construction Information Service provides electronic access to an index of standards, regulatory and advisory documents for the UK construction industry plus their full-text images, either scanned facsimiles or in Adobe PDF format. The Service gives you both bibliographic data such as document titles and summaries and facsimile images of the original documents.

CIS has been added to the same eSearch sub-Categories as the withdrawn Barbour Construction service (in Architecture and Civil Engineering; Property, Construction and Surveying; and Psychology, Sociology, Health and Social Care). CIS is provided on the same IHS platform as the OHSIS and Trading Standards Specialist services.
