ScienceDirect PDFs: Problem with Off-Campus AccessPosted on May 23, 2013 @11:18 am by madgett
For people off campus accessing PDFs of articles from journals on ScienceDirect, you can access the HTML version no problem through EZproxy, but clicking on the PDF icon brings a pop-up window asking for a log-in.
To get past this problem, you can right-click on the PDF and have it open in a new tab.
We are working to solve this problem.No Comments

Missed the News Yesterday? Try the Internet Archive TV NewsPosted on February 21, 2013 @12:38 pm by madgett
How would you like to be able to search a news archive for all the major news networks (and some smaller ones) at once? Now you can. Try out the Internet Archive TV News. Streaming Video (or, it says, you can “borrow” via DVD, but I haven’t explored that) results for keyword searches. It was originally set up for the 2012 U.S. presidential election, but they now describe themselves:
“The Internet Archive works to preserve the published works of human kind. Inspired by Vanderbilt University’s Television News Archive project, the Internet Archive collects and preserves television news. Like library collections of books and newspapers, this accessible archive of TV news enables anyone to reference and compare statements from this influential medium.
The collection now contains 350,000 news programs collected over 3 years from national U.S. networks and stations in San Francisco and Washington D.C. The archive is updated with new broadcasts 24 hours after they are aired. Older materials are also being added.” –Internet Archive TV News (21 Feb., 2013)No Comments

Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek – Frei zugängliche E-Journals Note: Only select articles are freely accessible.
…and been confused as to what it meant (unless you can read German). To clear up some confusion, the link has been re-named:
Regensburg OA Collection
…as it is a collection of links to “free” ejournals maintained by the Universitätsbibliothek Regensburg (University Library Regensburg). But remember the added note –sometimes not every article is “free”.No Comments
