Linking to full text articles just got easier
This summer, CUA libraries will be switching our link resolver from SFX to Serials Solution 360 Link. This means that the links you use to access full-text articles will be slightly different and (hopefully) more effective. For the most part, database searching will look the same; however, if you’re interested in checking out the new interface, you can access it through EbscoHost (such as Academic Search Premier) or ProQuest databases. Sometime this summer, the “Article Databases & More” link on the website will be removed, as will the MetaLib database and ejournal lists. They will be replaced with new and improved page and links.
Another new feature that may be of interest to students and staff is a trial of the bX recommender service. This is basically a way for users to get similar article suggestion from the Link Resolver (e.g. SFX or 360 Link). The trial will last a month and Electronic Resources and Services is hoping to get feedback when the trial has finished.
