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.

MetaLib/SFX upgrade on 23/Dec/2008

We’ll be applying a minor upgrade to MetaLib first thing on Tuesday 23rd December. The upgrade to MetaLib 4.2.2 (SP 403) doesn’t add any new functionality, but fixes a minor bug introduced by the previous service pack.

The upgrade work will be carried first thing on Tuesday morning and, if everything goes smoothly, will be completed by 8:30am. Whilst the upgrade is taking place, MetaLib will be unavailable.

Following on from that, we’ll be running a routine update of SFX. Although this takes longer to complete, SFX should be available throughout the update process.

As always, if you have any questions, please email library.support@hud.ac.uk
