QxMD announces new CME option for its HCP content engagement platform
- 18 Mar 2019

QxMD Software Inc., a digital learning technology company that makes it easier for healthcare professionals (HCPs) to discover the latest evidence and decision support tools for use in clinical practice, has announced a new continuing medical education (CME) option for its membership community comprised of more than two million healthcare professionals. In addition to the existing method of earning CME credits via the free Read by QxMD app, QxMD's growing clinician community can now also acquire CME via the new Learn by QxMD web app.

Learn by QxMD is a solution for professionals and content sponsors who are aligned around the need to stay current with relevant practice-changing information - from disease states and diagnosis to treatment optimisation and more. The Learn app is an especially convenient supplement to traditional CME options, offering clinicians a new convenient option for bite-sized learning on the go.

Accessible across any smartphone or computing device, Learn incorporates short videos, interactive polls and quizzes, and other types of engaging short-format content from healthcare industry sponsors. As a new native digital learning pathway inside QxMD's content engagement platform for healthcare professionals, LEARN courses are tailor-made in accordance with branding, regulatory compliance, and accreditation requirements.

Lean Library's Library Alternatives module now supports eBooks
- 17 Dec 2018

Library Alternatives, the module of the Lean Library browser extension that facilitates alternative routes to full-text resources, will now support eBooks. Acquired by SAGE Publishing earlier this year, the technology platform allows seamless access to journals, articles, open access content, and now eBooks that are licensed by a user's library, keeping them from paying for content they already have access to or being discouraged from using content altogether.

Founded by Johan Tilstra and Jan Thij Bakker in 2016, Lean Library's browser extension currently offers three modules: Library Access, Library Assist, and Library Alternatives. Library Alternatives: eBooks furthers Lean Library's ability to help users locate accessible content by identifying one or several ISBNs on a page and then connecting to a customer's Knowledge Base for alternative access routes. From there, the plugin will display up to ten results for the user's choosing.

By including eBooks in the Library Alternatives feature set will support librarians, students, professors, and other users of Lean Library as they further their careers, research, and passions.

The Library Alternatives module works with KBART files from any knowledge base, and with the Alma, SFX, Summon, and 360Link API's. All clients with a subscription to Library Alternatives have access to the eBook feature, though the plugin is only able to find eBooks activated in the user's Knowledge Base.

ProQuest's Ebook Central platform to feature DRM-free titles
- 21 Jun 2018

Researchers who use ProQuest's Ebook Central® platform will soon be able to download more than 100,000 DRM-free full books and DRM-free chapters from nearly 1 million books for access on any device. The move is part of ProQuest's ongoing commitment to improve usability and remove obstacles to access.

These books come from leading academic publishers like Cornell University Press, NYU Press, Harvard University Press, IOS Press, and dozens more. They also cover nearly every discipline - including arts, humanities, business, medicine, education, science and technology.

The Ebook Central platform's DRM-free titles will be available on a concurrent user basis with no sign-in or special software required to retrieve them. Patrons will not be subject to print, copy, or download limitations, and they can download both chapters and full titles from the book's landing page or the reader.

ProQuest's ever-expanding offering of DRM-free ebooks also includes 237,000 titles available via publisher platforms on the OASIS web-based search, selection and ordering service. The addition of these Ebook Central titles gives ProQuest customers access to more than 300,000 DRM-free titles.

Libraries can purchase these books on a title-by-title basis, via subscription, or through usage-based acquisition models like demand-driven acquisition (DDA) and access-to-own (ATO) from preferred ordering services - including the LibCentral®, OASIS® and GOBI services. They will also have the additional option to purchase a DRM-free unlimited user version of a title, or a limited user model with standard DRM protection, to maximise their budgets and develop more flexible collections.

University of Cergy-Pontoise opts for Ex Libris campusM mobile platform
- 20 Jun 2018

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Cergy-Pontoise (UCP) in Paris has selected the Ex Libris campusMTM mobile platform to enhance communication and services for students and staff across its six campuses. The platform will enable the university to deliver dynamic, personalised content and apps on smartphones, tablets, and web browsers.

The university made the decision to replace its static browser-based web portal with campusM in response to input from a diverse student body comprising digital natives, who expect instant access to campus systems, services, and content regardless of time and location. With the campusM platform, the university will have the tools to provide real-time, on-demand access to information that will help students succeed. UCP will also use campusM to create innovative student services in order to increase student satisfaction, engagement, and retention.

The Ex Libris campusM mobile app platform has been implemented by leading universities across Europe, the US, and the Asia-Pacific region to deliver personalised services and content. A flexible platform, campusM can be integrated with various campus systems, including student records systems, learning management systems, and library solutions. Non-technical administrators are easily able to create and publish dynamic content and real-time information and deliver it to specific groups of users, while IT professionals can use the campusM Application Extension Kit to develop new mobile apps on the iOS and Android platforms.

- 12 Jun 2018

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has launched a first-of-its-kind online learning platform which offers engineers and employers comprehensive, yet flexible engineering courses.

With the IET's latest skills survey showing that nearly two thirds of employers struggle to recruit engineers with the right skills, the IET Academy has been developed by industry experts to support engineers who want to improve their technical skills and knowledge while fitting training around their day job.

The online courses, which are fully interactive and broken up into manageable 'bite-size' chunks, will also benefit engineering companies who want to upskill and retain their workforce. Available via a handy App, the IET Academy can be accessed 'anywhere, anytime', providing easy access to in-depth training across a broad range of engineering fields.

The mobile courses are suitable for all engineers at any career stage, from apprentice to senior engineer and will support CPD as well as career development.

Initial specialist courses will cover key subjects in Power Systems Engineering, Mobile Communications and Management and Leadership with further courses being developed in Engineering Ethics, Entrepreneurship in Engineering, Professionalism, Risk Management, Transport, BIM, Cyber Security and the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations.
