Summon and BrowZine Integration

The eagle-eyed among you may have already spotted we have a few new links appearing within some of our article results in Summon: ‘Download Now’ and ‘Browse Now’:

This is the result of an update we’ve made to integrate the BrowZine service into Summon which gives us the ability to provide direct access to article pdfs as well as the option to explore the journal further by browsing the complete issue.

These links won’t appear alongside every article in Summon as BrowZine requires a DOI to generate these links and in some cases the publishers don’t provide this information.

What’s BrowZine?

BrowZine allows you to browse the library’s ejournals on virtual shelves. Easily discover, read and monitor the key journals in your field online or via an app on your tablet or phone.

Cambridge University Press – Access issues

We are currently experiencing problems accessing Cambridge University Press ebooks and ejournals.  When clicking on links from Summon the platform is not  authenticating users so you can’t access our subscribed content.

We have reported this problem to Cambridge and their technical team are investigating.

In the meantime you can access content via the Browzine platform.  When searching Summon for journal articles, click on Browse Now, to go to Browzine and locate the article you are interested in.  From her click ‘Read Full Text’.

Please email e.mailbox@hud.ac.uk with full details if there is anything you cannot access and we’ll endeavor to send you a link through which you can access the content.

 

Google Scholar – update

We have a new link resolver which has been set up for use in Google Scholar:

The “Full-Text @ Huddersfield” link should appear automatically if you’re on-campus.

If you’re off-campus, you’ll need to go into the Settings and select Library links.  Here you can search for and select  “University of Huddersfield – Full-Text @ Huddersfield” and finally click on the “Save” button.

If you had previously added the old link resolver you will need to do it again in order to pick up the new version.

If you need any help with this please email e.mailbox@hud.ac.uk
