FOLLOWING AN AUDIT of the free-to-access resources in the Find Databases service recently completed by the Serials team, several entries have been updated or withdrawn.
Political resources on the Net
This resource has been withdrawn by its publishers and is now only available as a snapshot in the index of the Internet Archive.
Sociological Tour through Cyberspace, A
This resource has been withdrawn by Trinity University and is now only available as a snapshot in the index of the Internet Archive.
JISC Historic Books
The on-campus and off-campus access URLs of the Find Databases listing for this licensed-free-for-HE resource have been updated to reflect a change in the WAYFLess URL format supported by the platform. Authenticated access remains by university username and password.
Keele Guide to Government & Politics on the Internet > British Government and Politics on the Internet
The Keele Guide to Government & Politics on the internet has now become the British Government and Politics on the Internet directory. The title, on-campus and off-campus URLs and Category assignments of the Find Databases listing for this resource have been updated accordingly.
Linguist List, The
The on-campus and off-campus access URLs of the Find Databases listing for this resource have been updated to reflect the reorganisation and relaunch of the site.
Marx and Engels’ Writings > Marx Engels Archive
The Marx and Engels’ Writings site is no longer active and is now only available as a snapshot in the index of the Internet Archive. The resource has therefore been replaced by the Marx Engels Archive which provides much of the same searchable full-text material.
NDAD (National Digital Archive of Datasets)
Both on-campus and off-campus access URLs of the Find Database listing for this resource have been updated to reflect the fact that the NDAD has now been incorporated in the main National Archives platform.
Supreme Court Applications
The on-campus and off-campus access URLs of the Find Databases listing for this resource have been updated following a reorganisation of the (UK) Supreme Court web site.
THE LISTING FOR the Zetoc abstract, indexing and table of contents service, has been withdrawn from the library’s Find Databases list following JISC’s retirement of the platform.
Zetoc was amongst the first online databases that the library enabled access to shortly after its launch in September 2000. Zetoc was also one of the first integrations to be bundled into the library’s then-new SFX OpenURL resolver service in 2004.
THE ENTRY FOR the retail analytics service for apparel brands and retailers EDITED has been removed from the Find Databases service.
EDITED was added to the library’s list of electronic resources back in March 2016. Access to the resource is now being managed at the NTU School level, with accounts being created manually for student cohorts requiring access.
As unmediated access to EDITED is no longer available, the resource has been removed from the library’s Find Databases list.
DURING THE FIRST months of the Covid-19 campus closure, the library was able to provide access to a large number of additional database resources to support learning, teaching and research activities. These resources were a combination of short-term subscriptions and materials made temporarily available under licence by publishers.
Over recent weeks, the majority of these temporary arrangements have concluded. As a result, the following resources have been removed from the Find Databases service.
