Serials Solutions 360 Link

In an effort to improve service to our users, the University Libraries have made a change in the OpenURL link resolver used for searching for full-text items in databases and journals. When you perform a search in one of the library databases, such as Ebsco Academic Search Premier, instead of the SFX button, you will see a button labeled "Find It" next to each article citation. Clicking on this button will provide users with any full-text options for the article.

In Minerva, the University Libraries online catalog, the full view record contains the "Find It" button. If you are searching for a particular journal, the "Find It" button will provide full-text options for the journal.

Additional information regarding the Serials Solutions 360 Link software is available at: http://www.serialssolutions.com/ss_360_link.html

Please call, email or stop by the Reference Desk if you have questions.

New Version of Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Software is launched!

The University Libraries have recently upgraded ILLiad, the request management software used for interlibrary loan and document delivery (including UA Delivery Services). Look for the completely redesigned Web screens for ILLiad, with a more intuitive interface and specialized forms for ordering videos, dissertations, etc. We hope that our new look will be more streamlined as you place your requests for materials owned in other libraries and in the University Libraries. Let us know what you think at libill@albany.edu
