Poppy appeal

We have a box of poppies in the library. Please come and buy a poppy if you would like to support the Royal British Legion

SFX article recommendation service

Following a successful trial, UCL has now launched a new article recommendation service, based on SFX. This works in a similar way to Amazon’s “Customers who bought this item also bought…” suggestions. It recommends articles that are similar to the one to which you’ve linked using SFX.

The recommendations are based on actual (anonymised) SFX usage data from SFX customers around the world, including UCL, and take account of articles viewed in the same session by significant numbers of users. They offer another mechanism for finding articles on a topic, as a complement to systematic literature searches.

Guide to the SFX recommendation service.

Current Contents Connect

UCL’s access to Current Contents Connect has ceased.

Users will continue to have access to Zetoc, the British Library’s electronic table of contents of journals and conference proceedings, and to alerting services in indexing and abstracting databases.

Cambridge University Press archives

UCL now has access to collections of archives from Cambridge University Press.

The collections contains older content of 65 titles, including Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Epidemiology and Infection, Geological Magazine and Visual Neuroscience.

All the titles and coverage have been added to the ejournals list.
