IEEE Xplore platform – Shibboleth login issues

With colleagues in Information Systems, LLR is investigating an issue which is preventing off-campus login to the IEEE Xplore platform. Customers selecting ‘Nottingham Trent University’ from the available list of institutions to log in from are resolved to a Shibboleth error page rather than to the NTU Single Sign-On page.

A further update will follow once the issue has been successfully resolved.

New resource: IEEE Xplore

The IEEE Xplore database, produced by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, has been enabled in Library OneSearch and SFX.

Access to the resource is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

Produced by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and its publishing partners, this database delivers full text access to the world’s highest quality technical literature in engineering and technology. This database provides web access to almost 3 million full-text documents from some of the world’s most highly cited publications in electrical engineering, computer science and electronics. Content in IEEE Xplore comprises 151 journals, over 900 conference proceedings and more than 3,400 technical standards. NB: no access is available to ebooks or educational courses.

Individual title level records for IEEE journals, Conference Proceedings, Conference Series, Standards and other materials has been enabled in SFX. Individual title level journal records will be added to the main Library OneSearch index shortly. Article level and other content from the IEEE collection is already discoverable in ‘All’ searches in Library OneSearch.
