A timely repeat of a 2013 blog as we move into first assignment time. All hail, Alan Cockerill the Library Technologies Coordinator for the below information. Alan is the Star Trek Scotty of Starship Library Services (working below decks to make sure the system keeps working). I strongly recommend reading his informative blog entries for both staff and students.
is a great way for anyone to see the broad range of materials we
provide to complement study and research from anywhere in the world,
even if you aren't a currently working or studying at JCU. But remember
when you search One Search from off campus there are some things you won't see unless you login.
of our subscription collections are not permitted to be discovered by
non-JCU people by the terms of our licensing agreements, so if you are
off campus remember to log in by clicking
Which is located at the very top of your search results screen:
This will take you to the Elibary Gateway login screen
your JCU login and password and you will be returned to your results
page, with access to even more content including Web Of Science citation
counts, direct linking to full text, and specialist collections like
the Naxos streaming music collection. Even in the simple example shown
in the images the number of records returned has jumped by 20%.
Increasingly One Search is direct linking to full text rather that going through Find It@JCU
- this can mean if you haven't logged in the full text provider will
not recognise you as part of JCU and you may get a screen asking you to
pay for an article rather than getting access to our subscription.
So get in the habit of logging into One Search when you're at home, at work, or on the road.
