…okay, really the info is mostly old. But it may be “new” to you. Here’s some free online resources worth a look:

Methods in Enzymology is a series of scientific publications focused primarily on research methods in biochemistry…The series is widely used and cited in the biomedical research field.” -Wikipedia

We have access back to the 2000 publications.

Due to technical complications, the ebooks in the Irwin Law Collection are a bit tricky to find at the moment. The records in the Catalogue have old links and will be replaced soon.

For now, use this URL and then either browse or search for titles. Titles found in Summon are unfortunately a mix of good and bad links right now.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

The UBC Library has access to the British Medical Journal back to 1840 (when it was the Provincial Medical & Surgical Journal ).

Just a heads up for folks working this weekend.

There will be work on the UBC Catalogue this weekend. Many ejournal records will be removed & later replaced. This may cause problems with people using the “Search for Print and Online Journals” left-hand search box, but will not affect the “Search for Online Journals Only” right-hand search box.

The Citation Linker will not be affected (for ejournals). Clear?

*UPDATE* Summon is fixed. Please clear your browser’s cache & cookies and report any further problems to E-Resources & Access.

Yikes! Summon is having intermittent problems this morning. It is being worked on. Stay tuned.

Wondering what new innovations (or current problems) our online resource providers are in a twitter about? Wonder no more with the new Twitter Feed page on the E-Resources & Access blog.

…but our home-grown tweets still get the Home page.

Just a heads up. There are some title URLs and coverage problems with various EBSCOhost databases. Per our good friends at Serials Solutions…

We are having data inconsistency issues… and are working to obtain the correct dates and URLs for every title.

So, keep emailing us if you run into problems, but be prepared for a bumpy ride.

From now till October 7th, we are offering trial access to The London Review of Books.

The London Review of Books was founded in 1979, during the year-long lock-out at the Times. For the first six months, it appeared marsupially in the New York Review of Books. In May 1980, the London Review of Books jumped out of the parental pouch and became a fully independent literary paper.” -LRB website 06se2011

And after you check it out, “hop” on over to our feedback form. Hey, they started this metaphor. Or is it a conceit?
