Materials subject portal
SOLO (Search Oxford Libraries Online) will search across OLIS, as well as the Oxford University Research Archive (ORA) and other catalogues and e-resources collections so that your search results will be more comprehensive. Facets provide many additional links and there are options to email results, save results for bibliographic management packages, save searches and create search alerts. SOLO search results link to OLIS so that when you find the item you want, you will be able to place a stack request or a reservation. SOLO also allows for seamless linking to full-text journal articles.
An "Articles and Databases" tab gives you a quick overview (no more than 30 results per database searched) of journal articles, abstracts or bibliographic references in many subjects. Use this if you just want a sample of search results but go to OxLIP+ if you want to do detailed searching of the 800+ e-resources and databases.
OxLIP+ enables you to look for a resource by title or by subject, as before, but you can also search for a database by a word in its title or description. Selective databases can be cross-searched, thus allowing you to pick and choose databases from Humanities, Social Sciences, Science and Medicine for truly interdisciplinary searching. Ask your local librarian for assistance with the many new options on offer.
OU E-Journals, which should already be familiar to most of you, is still available as a separate search service and is your easiest way into a full-text ejournal. Oxford now has over 28,000 titles!
Use Single-Sign-On (SSO) to have access to the full range of resources and services. No more need for VPN or Athens - just logon using your SSO account (which is the same as your Herald email userid & password)!
