E-Journal Management Change

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Duke University Libraries (and Ford Library) will be activating a new e-journal management tool tomorrow morning (Tuesday, August 24). You may notice some brief interruptions in your access to e-journals at that time; but these are likely to be short-lived.

Prior to this change-over, Ford Library has temporarily disabled the e-journal search box in the “E-journals” tab of our home page; but has provided a link to the main Duke Libraries e-journal search box. Our own search box will become available again sometime Tuesday morning after the change-over

We will also be introducing a new, tabbed browsing page for our Selected E-journals on our web site. As we’ve added more e-journal titles, our current, 3 column format became too dense to scan quickly. We hope you’ll find the new tabbed list easier to read and use.

Thank you for your patience during this transition, and please email us if you have any questions or concerns about this change. Your feedback is always welcome.

Get Article Full Text Faster!

link direct to articles

Duke University Libraries is running a pilot of a new feature in Article Search. When you use Article Search from our home page, clicking the GetIt@Duke button in the results list should take you directly to the full text.

This pilot program is intended to test a new feature of our article linking software that will reduce the number of clicks you have to make to actually view the text of a desired article. Once Article Search has created a results list, clicking the GetIt@Duke button at the bottom of an article citation should take you to the actual article.

A sample search result is HERE.

Since this is a pilot project, this feature may not work perfectly. Please help us improve the new feature, and determine if it’s worth long-term deployment by contacting us when it doesn’t work the way you expect it to.

Thanks for sharing your feedback with us!
