Inspec has been cancelled

 Maintenance, New content, Worth reading  Comments Off on Inspec has been cancelled
Feb 032016

The Consortium Luxembourg has made the decision to cancel Inspec due to significantly low use and budget constraints.  Inspec is no longer be available since 1st February 2016.

Inspec is a bibliographic database that is produced by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and provides abstracts and indexing to scientific and technical papers in physics, electrical engineering, electronics, communications, control engineering, computing, information technology, manufacturing, production and mechanical engineering.

Although we avoid cancelling resources whenever possible, we must make this decision on occasion. In times where bibliographic references can also be found in search engines like GoogleScholar or even a-z.lu (Digital Library – Scholarly articles) we would like to set our focus on financing full text databases like, for this discipline, PROLA (American Physical Society) or IEEE Xplore.

If you have any comments on this, please send an e-mail to help@findit.lu.
