Blog moves to Aalto blogs

From now on e-library blogging will continue at the Aalto blogging site. New posts will no-longer be added to this site.
It is not currently possible to import the old blog posts from this blog to the new one, but that will be done as soon as possible.

CSA databases move to new Proquest platform

CSA (now a part of Proquest) has previously provided us access to over 60 separate databases, which could all be searched in the Nelli portal. Now these databases have been grouped into 21 larger databases and been moved to the new Proquest platform, which also hosts 12 other databases. These can all be searched through Nelli as well as on the platform.

SPIE Digital Library in use

We now have full access to the SPIE Digital Library until the end of 2011. The library includes SPIE journals, conference proceedings and ebooks.

The resource can be accessed directly from the link above, but for remote use go through the Nelli portal. You can also search the database in Nelli.

Ellibs e-books now use IP-based authentication

The Ellibs ebook service now authenticates, like the rest of our e-resources, based on user IP-address. This means that anyone can access the material in the university network and that remote use requires Aalto authentication. The books can no longer be accessed with the login based on Otaniemi library card details, and as that is no longer required, all Aalto members can now access the books.

Nelli portal to Aalto identification on Monday 9 May 2011

There will be service breaks in Off campus access on Monday 9th of May 2011, as we move to using Aalto indentification in the Nelli-portal. After the change all users with Aalto identification can remotely use the materials through Nelli.

The old MySpace accounts are available until Sunday 8th of  May 2011.

Unfortunately the MySpace accounts in Nelli can not be converted from the old to the new user names. Please save the references in your bookshelf to eg. Refworks or some other reference management system. You will need to find and save your preferred databases, journals and alerts again after the new log-in begins.
