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.
Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy
Bates’ Visual Guide to Physical Examination
Bloomsbury Architecture Library
Bloomsbury Education and Childhood Studies
Bloomsbury Medieval Studies
Cambridge University Press – Cambridge Core
eBook Academic Collection
eBook Harvard Business Publishing Collection
LWW Health Library

The library is in the process of subscribing to a wide range of additional online resources, and details of these new collections will be made available through this blog.
THE BRITISH FILM Institute (BFI) InView multimedia streaming platform has been withdrawn from the Find Databases service of Library OneSearch following the suspension of the service at the end of the current licensing period.
While future options in relation to subscription content on the new BFI Player service are reviewed, access to the Free collection on the BFI Player platform has been enabled in the Find Databases service.
Access to the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses – UK and Ireland (ProQuest) service has been withdrawn from the Find Databases service of Library OneSearch. This database has been superseded by the ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global database which offers “a collection of dissertations and theses from around the world, spanning from 1743 to the present day and offering full text for graduate works added since 1997, along with selected full text for works written prior to 1997.”
Access to the INSPEC database (provided through the Engineering Village platform) has been withdrawn from the Find Databases and main search indexes of Library OneSearch following the conclusion of the library’s subscription to the resource. Access to the Compendex service continues to be available through the Engineering Village site.
