Anyone using the new Artemis platform from Gale to direct users to things like MLA Intl. Bibliography, Literature Resource Center, Literature Criticism Online, Twayne's Authors Series, LitFinder, etc.?
Anyone have Encore/Sierra? If so, can you tell me about their mobile app? I'm a little concerned that the page touting their mobile app mentions that they support the Palm Pre. http://www.iii.com/product...
Hi there, what are your questions about my research guide? Just so you know, I do not link to outside content when it is suggested, without prompting, by those unaffiliated with the university. I consider this practice to be link farming (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...) and an irresponsible use of my web content. Best, Meg
Question for folks at academic libraries that are more heavily invested in e-reference platforms than we are (which would be most of them): so, you've got content in various vendor silos -- Oxford, Gale, Credo, etc. -- how do you search across all of them? More importantly, how does the user search across all of them?
HBR and EBSCO shenanigans... "As of August 2013, some changes will be made to Harvard Business Review (HBR) article access for Business Source customers. This change will not affect institutions that have already purchased the expanded rights from Harvard Business Publishing."
So I wouldn't call this group (LSW) anti-discovery, but it's definitely cautious/skeptical. I fully recognize it's not a panacea and that in many situations more limited databases, and sometimes even an OPAC, are better. But there's one objection that I'd like some help understanding, if anyone here shares it.
A professor just brought to my attention a discrepancy in how EBSCO and ProQuest list a serial (not the only instance of this, I'm sure!). The serial is ABA Journal--EBSCO calls it a periodical, ProQuest says it is scholarly, and Ulrichs says it is refereed. Looking at the content, I say EBSCO is right. Is this something that is worth pursuing?
