New Find Databases - browse by letter

DURING THE CURRENT closure of the campus libraries, LLR is making additional electronic resources available for off-campus access by staff and students.

This material is a mixture of content that publishers are making openly available to Higher Education institutions during the Covid-19 pandemic, and materials that the library has been able to licence paid-access to for a time-limited period.

The current full list of additional resources is available from the dedicated Find Databases link https://llr.ntu.ac.uk/dbaz/index.php?extra=y.

More resources are being added to list as new access arrangements are finalised.

Each of these resources has been added to the relevant subject sub-categories in the Find Databases service, and can be identified by the New temporary resource icon show below.

Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) eBook project enters selection phase

The library’s current Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) eBook project, which involved making tens of thousands of new eBook titles available for customer discovery in Library OneSearch, has entered its selection phase (during which the library decides which titles will be bought outright in perpetuity, and which will be withdrawn from the collection). This selection process has begun, following the conclusion of the discovery phase of the project at the end of April.

While final selections are agreed, the following sets of eBook titles have been suspended from discovery in Library OneSearch:

  • Bloomsbury (2,013 titles)
  • Cambridge University Press (30,391 titles)
  • Sage (4,306 titles)
  • Oxford Scholarship Online (11,812 titles)

EBA eBook titles which have been added to resource lists during the discovery phase should still continue to be accessible through the links provided in the RLMS.

Once title selections have been confirmed for each provider, the purchased titles will updated and made discoverable once again in Library OneSearch.

The Wiley EBA package (consisting of 17,879 titles) will continue to be active until the end of May.

Bloomsbury – off-campus authentication issues resolved

The previously reported problems preventing off-campus access to eBook titles on the Bloomsbury Collections platform have now been resolved.

Off-campus access is available once again by university username and password. An illustrated walkthrough of each step in the off-campus login process is available.

Bloomsbury Collections eBook titles: off-campus access currently unavailable

Off-campus access to eBook titles in the Bloomsbury Collections set is currently unavailable due to a problem affecting Bloomsbury’s Shibboleth Service Provider.

Off-campus login requests (via NTU username and password) are currently resolving to an error page. A further update will follow once off-campus access to Bloomsbury Collections’ content has been reinstated. On-campus access (via IP authentication) is unaffected.
