German Thieme announces latest SOS 4.11 release, Science of Synthesis gets content boost - 09 Aug 2018

Science of Synthesis 4.11, the latest release of Thieme's knowledge base for synthetic methodology, features insights on carbolines and S,S-acetals as well as catalytic reduction. The update consists of a reference library volume as well as a new Knowledge Update, comprising approximately 970 pages of new content.

Available a mere two weeks after publication of the hard copy, Knowledge Update 2018/2 features a major new chapter on carbolines or pyrido[X,Y-b]indoles by J. A. Joule. The chapter covers the synthesis of all four regioisomeric heterocyclic systems found in both natural products and pharmaceuticals. Highlights of this release also include an introductory chapter on S,S-acetals by T.-Y. Luh and M.k. Leung, describing their use as protecting groups for carbonyl compounds and as alternative functional groups for further transformations. Also included are new knowledge-base chapters on the synthesis of 1,3-dithietanes and 1,3-dithiolanes by T.-Y. Luh, M.k. Leung, and C.-M. Chou, as the latter are particularly important as masked carbonyl compounds.

The new Knowledge Update volume comprises a total of approximately 500 printed pages representing the most up-to-date and reliable synthetic methods. SOS Knowledge Updates are governed by clearly defined criteria for method selection as well as established editorial processes. Due in great part to this discerning and continuous updating process, SOS prevails as one of the most up-to-date evaluated electronic reference works available, emphasizing the most significant developments in synthetic methodology.

Following the addition of the first volume with SOS 4.10 in March, SOS 4.11 now expands the Reference Library with Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis, Vol. 2 edited by J. G. de Vries. This volume, like Volume 1, includes the latest developments in the field of catalytic reductions. In addition to covering both heterogeneous and homogeneous catalytic systems, Catalytic Reduction in Organic Synthesis offers a good representation of enantioselective methodology. Comprising 468 printed pages, Volume 2 focuses on carbonyl group reductions, with contributions on the reduction of aldehydes, ketones, and carboxylic acids and derivatives. Also covered are important reductions of specific functional groups including nitriles, azides, and nitro compounds.

With expert evaluated content focusing on subjects of particular current interest, the SOS Reference Library complements the SOS Knowledge Updates to make SOS the complete information source for the modern synthetic chemist.

Italy University of Sassari opts for Ex Libris Alma library services platform to increase efficiency and strengthen collaboration - 09 Aug 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that Italy's University of Sassari has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform to improve the library's efficiency, support decision-making, and foster collaboration with libraries at the local and international levels. The university has been using the Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution, which will be integrated with the Alma platform.

With the increasingly large role that electronic resources play in the university's heritage collections and acquisitions, the library decided to move to a platform that would support both print and electronic resources. In addition, the library sought a system that would provide research tools that allow for a high level of personalisation, interaction, and sharing and would facilitate the librarians' collaboration with university staff and members of national and international networks.

As well as benefiting from the harmonised workflows that these integrations create, the library team at Sassari will be leveraging Alma analytics to assess the usage of the university's heritage documents and to provide essential intelligence to support acquisition policies. For the librarians, the opportunity to work within the Alma Community Zone will guarantee a source of valuable information about cataloguing, acquisitions, and resource management, while for users, the tight integration with the Primo solution will facilitate the customisation of searches and make them more effective.
