The OSH-UPDATE database has been withdrawn from eSearch following the completion of the current subscription.
Withdrawn resources: Interior Design Handbook, OSH-ROM, JustCite
The listing for the Interior design handbook has been withdrawn from eSearch.
The entry for the OSH-ROM service has also been withdrawn (this resource has been superseded by the new OSH-UPDATE service, available in eSearch).
The entry for the JustCite service has been withdrawn from eSearch.
New resource: OSH-UPDATE
Access to the OSH-UPDATE service has been set-up in eSearch. Access is direct on-campus, and by university username and password from off-campus (using the Shibbolized eZproxy service). The resource is described as follows:
OSH-UPDATE offers more than 500,000 records in the fields of occupational health, safety, hygiene, road safety, water safety and environment trends, drawn from a range of authoritative database sources including the UK legislation database; the UK Health and Safety Executive HSELINE; and the UK Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), and a number of other European and worldwide sources.
OSH-UPDATE provides full bibliographic citation and abstracts for all journal articles, conference reports and other materials in its index; and offers links to selected full-text services where these are available.
As only a single simultaneous user is permitted under the terms of LLR’s licence, the following note has also been added:
Please note: under the terms of LLR’s subscription to OSH-UPDATE only one person may access the resource at a time. To free up the service for the next visitor, always remember to Logoff at the end of your session. If you see the following error message, “You have reached your licences limit on the number of concurrent sessions”, please try again later.
For LLR, OSH-UPDATE serves as a replacement for the OSH-ROM service which will shortly cease to be available from Silverplatter-OVID. A further update will confirm when OSH-ROM has been withdrawn from eSearch.
Silverplatter platform: back on-line on schedule
Following the maintenance work over the weekend of 16-17 December, access to the Geography, OSH-ROM and ICONDA services was restored on Monday as scheduled.
Silverplatter downtime Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 December
Maintenance work on the ARC platform (used by Silverplatter) over the coming weekend means that there will be no access to the following databases on either Saturday or Sunday: OSH-ROM, Geography and ICONDA. Access to the Silveplatter-ARC versions of IBSS and BIOSIS will also be unavailable, but we provide prefered access to both these resources on the OVID platform, where service will continue uninterrupted. I will update on the status of these resources on Monday.
