Ingenta launches new discovery and delivery platform - Ingenta Connect Unity
- 12 Mar 2019

Ingenta, a provider of highly configurable technology solutions to publishers, has announced the launch of Ingenta Connect Unity, a new addition to Ingenta's family of discovery and delivery platforms.

Ingenta Connect Unity functions as a simple, cost effective way to provide online access to publications, and gives publishers the option to join the renowned Ingenta Connect network while maintaining and continuing to establish their own brand.

Reaching over 1 million individual users a month, Ingenta Connect is seen to be ideal for publishers looking to increase the global visibility of their publications, or those who are looking for an additional online channel to market. Ingenta Connect Unity provides a step between Ingenta Connect and a fully separate, customised site. An Ingenta Connect Unity site emulates 'look and feel' elements of a publisher's dedicated site while continuing to offer all the enhanced discoverability, ecommerce, analytics and support for which Ingenta Connect has become known.

OCLC and StackMap partner to enhance discovery experience for library users
- 28 Jan 2019

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has announced a partnership with StackMap, an indoor mapping and way-finding service, to enhance the discovery of library materials by providing detailed directions to the location of physical items within a library.

Libraries currently using WorldShare Management Services (WMS) and subscribing to StackMap can now integrate StackMap within the WorldCat Discovery interface to enhance the user experience. After identifying a desired physical item using WorldCat Discovery, users are now able to locate the item within the library without the difficulty of navigating through the stacks in search of the call number.

As a bookshelf visualisation platform for library catalogues, StackMap provides users with a detailed map and written directions to the location of physical items within the library. While OCLC libraries previously had the ability to use StackMap through the Chrome browser extension, mutual subscribers will benefit from this native integration with WorldCat Discovery through a more seamless and intuitive user experience.

WMS libraries that subscribe to StackMap and use WorldCat Discovery as their search interface can immediately integrate StackMap.

ProQuest News now discoverable via Ex Libris Primo
- 31 Aug 2018

According to a ProQuest 2017 survey, 87 percent of faculty members recommend news sources as a research tool for students - and 72 percent use it themselves. To address the teaching, learning and research needs of the academic community, ProQuest is making more of its digital news content discoverable via Ex Libris Primo, the discovery service that delivers access across the breadth of libraries' print, electronic and digital collections.

ProQuest Historical Newspapers, Recent Newspapers and Newsstream collections - covering nearly 3,000 titles from the early 1700s to today - are now discoverable through Primo. Researchers can quickly find the news they need in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian&Observer, The Washington Post, The Globe and Mail, The Times of India and thousands more titles.In 2018, ProQuest has enabled discovery of many other ProQuest databases through Primo. Among them are History Vault, ProQuest Congressional and Government databases, House of Commons Parliamentary Papers and Statistical Insight and Statistical Abstract, helping users discover content across all disciplines.

Primo provides a digital gateway to help academic libraries maximise the exposure of their collections, giving patrons fast access to scholarly materials and intuitive ways to explore new content. The service integrates with a range of library and academic systems for end-to-end, efficient workflows.

Thieme unveils new discovery tool for synthetic chemistry methods
- 17 Aug 2018

Medical and scientific publishing house Thieme has announced the launch of SynOne, a new discovery tool that allows the scientific community to search, browse, and discover selected publications from the Thieme Chemistry portfolio. Organised systematically by compound classes to ensure easy access, SynOne links up content from journals and reference works - including SYNTHESIS, SYNLETT, SYNFACTS, Science of Synthesis and Pharmaceutical Substances. The innovative interface offers organic chemists fast access to relevant and reliable syntheses in context.

SynOne enables users to use novel and intuitive ways of browsing compound classes as well as search and discover selected Thieme Chemistry content. It is possible to search for molecules of interest and break them down into potential precursors. Users can identify useful functional groups and related compounds. SynOne's content is organised by compound classes, allowing for a systematic search - with a few clicks users can access reliable content relating to their chosen product class. The content can be browsed in tree view, grid view and map view.

Users can also search for content via metadata search terms or draw and upload structures. The search machine will then find all the relevant information sources enabling the researcher to start working on new ways of designing and constructing molecules.

Users can search for selected functional groups across several SynOne categories, for example, organometallics, hetarenes and hydrocarbons, as well as special topics. With a few clicks they have access to current awareness articles from SYNFACTS, primary literature journal articles in SYNTHESIS and SYNLETT, full-text synthetic methodology reviews in Science of Synthesis and encyclopedic information from Pharmaceutical Substances. In this way the chemist can get an interesting and accurate overview of a chosen topic very quickly. They can also identify new areas of interest as well as related information and reactions.

Searching SynOne is free and requires no registration. Full access to journal or database articles is available to users with individual or institutional subscriptions to the respective sources.

SynOne helps put synthesis in context. Each of the Thieme Chemistry publications covered in SynOne is supported by an editorial board of internationally renowned experts who ensure that chemical researchers are presented with the latest and - even more importantly - most relevant research in their fields.
