Links to Electronic Journals Evolve
After months of behind-the-scenes work, the Library rolled out a new feature that changed how links to full-text journals are accessed via the Library's online catalog, INNOPAC (link removed). Although it is mainly an aesthetic change to most, this new product provides the Library staff greater control over the ever-increasing number of journals available electronically.
Previously available under the "Click on the following to" heading, links to the full-text of journals are now available under the "This title is available electronically via" link:
The notes for the links to the full-text also provide important information about the electronic versions of the journal. Not only can you see whether the full-text is available from the publisher or a database, but you can also see if there are any access restrictions on those sources. Perhaps the most important of these messages are the time limits some publishers place on the most recent issues of journals; look for any statement beginning with "Restriction" for a description of any access limitations. Additionally, the years of coverage from each source of the electronic version of a journal are located next to this link.
For those wanting to explore some of the advanced workings of this new feature, clicking on the "About Resource" button next to a link provides a listing of all of the other titles we have available from that publisher or database:
We hope that this new addition to the Library's catalog proves to be helpful to our patrons, but we also have a tutorial that provides a step-by-step video of how to navigate this new feature: http://www.lsuhsc.edu/no/library/tutorials/innopac-journal-fulltext.wmv. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance accessing any of the Library's journals.
