S’inscrivant dans le cadre du nouveau projet de l’Inist « Ingénierie des Connaissances 2014-2018 », les bases de données bibliographiques Francis et Pascal cesseront d’être alimentées au 31 décembre 2014.

Les archives Francis et Pascal constituées par plus de 22,5 millions de références seront par la suite ouvertes en libre accès au cours de l’année 2015. L’Inist négocie actuellement auprès de ses distributeurs (Ebsco, Ovid, ProQuest, STN), les modalités du maintien de ces archives sur les plates-formes dédiées afin d’assurer la continuité du service durant cette phase de transition, afin que celle-ci s’effectue dans les meilleures conditions.

science-direct-scopus-logoThe new ScienceDirect and Scopus interfaces have been redesigned to allow for a more productive search and discovery experience. The primary goal of the interface redesigns was to streamline the number of steps a user needs to take to accomplish the most common tasks.

Specific enhancements include:

  • Implementing a new visual style resulting in a cleaner overall user interface
  • Applying more action-driven functionality with some features only appearing when a user performs an action
  • Enhancing the ability to export directly to reference management tools such as Mendeley

To learn more about the ScienceDirect and Scopus releases, please use the following resources:

Several products show low usage on findit.lu. As the Consortium Luxembourg is confronted with a difficult budgetary situation and as the respective vendors were unwilling to lower their prices, it was decided to discontinue these products.

Effective January 1st 2014, the following products have been deleted completely from findit.lu:

The subscription to the « International Journal of Sports Medecine » (G. Thieme Verlag) is also cancelled but thanks to perpetual access rights you may continue to access all issues from 2000-2013 on findit.lu.

Accommodating the rising costs of electronic publications is difficult as they have risen much faster than inflation in the past years, while budgets stagnated. Therefore the Consortium Luxembourg is unable to continue to add new eBooks published in 2014 to its Springer eBook collection.
This decision affects only Springer eBooks to be published in 2014, those will not become available on findit.lu. Access to eBooks published from 2005-2013 continues without any changes!

We’re hoping to be able to update our Springer licence with the 2014 eBooks titles as soon as the current funding situation improves.
For further assistance or questions, please send an e-mail to help@findit.lu.

In order to deal with our current budget situation and rising license costs of electronic subscriptions, the Consortium Luxembourg was unable to add new journal titles to two journal collections in 2014. Access to historical titles (including 2014 issues) will continue!

This decision affects:
Oxford University Press Journals: Our ongoing subscription to Oxford University Press Journals includes all journal titles which were part of the OUP collection in 2012. For these titles, all the latest issues published in 2014 will be available. For journal titles launched or acquired by Oxford University Press after 2012, no access at all will be available.

Wiley Online Library: Our ongoing subscription to the Wiley Online Library includes all journal titles which were part of the Wiley collection in 2010. For these titles, all the latest issues published in 2014 will be available. Only for journal titles launched or acquired by Wiley after 2011 no issues will be available.

We’re hoping to be able to update our subscriptions with the additional journal titles as soon as the current funding situation improves.
