CD-ROM content migration to eSearch – Digital Textiles, Spon’s price books and Trend Report 2007

Following the withdrawal of LLR’s networked CD-ROM service, several titles identified were identified for retention and migration to a new delivery platform.

The following titles are now available, as .pdf or PowerPoint files, through eSearch:

  • Digital Textiles
  • Spon’s Architects’ and Builders’ Price Book
  • Spon’s Civil Engineering and Highway Works Price Book
  • Spon’s External Works and Landscape Price Book
  • Trend Report 2007

Access to these titles is by University domain, username and password (although on-campus visitors who have already authenticated into other services may not be challenged again to login). Digital Textiles and Trend Report 2007 are accessible on-campus and off-campus. The Spon’s price book titles are only accessible from on-campus. Because of the way that LLR is managing this content, it is necessary to add ads\ (the standard university domain) before entering a university username (e.g. ads\NXXXXXX) to login successfully to these materials.

Access to alternative web based Croner materials (which replace several now-withdrawn Croner CD-ROM titles) should be available shortly. LLR is waiting on Wolters Kluwer to complete some additional configuration work before these titles can be activated. A further update on Croner content will be provided as soon as possible.
