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.

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

Box of Broadcasts – Playback Issues with Internet Explorer 11

Please be aware that users attempting to access videos within the Box of Broadcasts (BoB) database using a combination of Internet Explorer 11 web browser and Windows 10 operating system may currently experience some issues with videos freezing either before or during playback.

This problem is being investigated by the providers of BoB, but until it is resolved users encountering playback issues are advised to try using the resource on another web browser. BoB recommend using one of the following:

• Edge 12 (or later)
• Mozilla Firefox 44 (or later)

Upgrade to Taylor & Francis Online Security Settings

Please be aware that due to an upgrade of their security settings Taylor and Francis Journals may no longer function on older web browsers (eg. Internet Explorer 10 or earlier).

Users who attempt to access Taylor and Francis journal content on older browsers from this point onward may receive an error message, which can be avoided by updating the browser to a newer version.

Please contact e.mailbox@hud.ac.uk if you have any questions or concerns about this development.

Westlaw UK Upgrade – 16th December

Please be aware that from 16th December Westlaw will be launching some improvements to their Westlaw UK database platform. Upon entering the service after this date, users may have to complete a one-time registration process, after which it can be accessed using your existing log in credentials. There should be no loss of access to the database, but if you have bookmarked links to content within Westlaw these will no longer function.

More information on the improvements to Westlaw can be found in this guide. If you have queries which are not answered by this information, please contact the library at e.mailbox@hud.ac.uk

Box of Broadcasts (New Resource)

Box of Broadcasts (also known as BoB) is an archive of free-to-air TV and radio programmes available to you through the University of Huddersfield Library subscription.  You can choose to watch previously recorded programmes, request future programmes and save lists of programmes for your learning, teaching or research.

The first time that you access BoB, it will ask you to register your university email address (undergraduates and postgraduate taught students = u1234567@unimail.hud.ac.uk). You will need to confirm your address by checking your email and clicking on the link provided.  Once registered, you will be prompted to log in with your University login and password.  You can access BoB through the A-Z list of electronic resources (find BoB under the letter B) or directly from this link.

BoB will replace UniTube for access to free-to-air TV and radio recordings.  However, UniTube will still be available for recordings requested prior to summer 2017, and for some unique material including lectures from University staff. Search or browse UniTube here (normal university ID and login).
