New e-resources pages on search and discovery tools

Wed, 10/16/2019 - 09:38

Some really good information here on how to get hold of those all important articles, especially open access ones.


New pages on search and discovery tools have been added to the e-resources website.   These pages are intended to promote discovery of Open Access content and provide links and guidance to help users when they meet a subscription paywall.

The pages can be access here:

and are linked from the top-left box on the e-resources site.

The pages replace the “Articles and journals” page.

The iDiscover article search box has been moved to the first concertina box on the “Ask Cambridge Libraries” page.

There is also now linked from this page an iDiscover “Citation Linker” for article searching using ISSN, Title, DOI or PMID (or ISBN for books).

The pages comprise:

Open Access browser plugins
