UK Press Online – platform update

The UK Press Online service have just launched an updated version of their discovery platform. (LLR has been involved in some pre-release technical testing of the new interface.) Access to the service remains direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus.

Library customers accessing UK Press Online from off-campus through Library OneSearch will be automatically directed to the university’s single sign-on page. Anyone navigating to the platform independently from off-campus, will need to select the UK Federation Access option from the UK Press Online login page (see illustration below), and then search for ‘Nottingham Trent University’ on the Where Are You From (WAYF) page.

New resource: UK Press Online

The UK Press Online service is now available in Library OneSearch. LLR’s subscription to content on the UK Press Online platform comprises full-text access to the archives of the Daily Mirror, Daily Express and Sunday Express. Access is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

UK Press Online provides access to the full-text archives of the Daily Mirror (1903-present), Daily Express (1900-present) and Sunday Express (2000-present). Every page is available in thumbnail, small preview, full-size view and ready-to-print PDF with live text, and page-by-page browse of editions.

Access to each of the three titles in LLR’s subscription has also been enabled in SFX (the Find it @ NTU service). At present, the UK Press Online service does not support deep-linking to the article level, so SFX links resolve to the native interface of UK Press Online rather than to the individual article or the ‘homepage’ of the individual journal.
