On Saturday 26th June eBooks from ProQuest Ebook Central will be unavailable, due to an essential server move. During this time no eBooks will be available from Ebook Central, which is the main supplier of eBooks at Edge Hill University.
To prepare for this we recommend you download books or chapters in advance where this is possible. You can do so here.
In 2020 the Teaching Online Reading Group for EHU academic staff members was launched (via MS Teams) by Dr Claire Hawkins, Senior Lecturer in Primary Computing Education and Sonia Edwards, Academic Engagement Manager in Library and Learning Services. The aim was to provide a space to discuss user-friendly, research-based articles about online teaching and learning. The group provides a valuable opportunity to actively and critically consider what it means to teach in a virtual world. It is ideal for people who have been forced to rush headlong into online teaching and want time to reflect and discuss their practice.
For Edge Hill staff and students publishing research articles, we have several deals in place with publishers to enable gold open access without article processing charges (APCs). Unfortunately, our deal with Wiley will be unavailable for most researchers from 1 July 2021 – 1 January 2022.
Hello, and welcome, to all you lovely new Fastrack students arriving this week! You have a busy few weeks ahead of you, but Library and Learning Services are here to help and support you along the way!
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature across disciplines, making it a great tool for doing research. It also provides access to reliable article data, metrics and analytical tools. As well as the search function, Scopus has a powerful current awareness tool so new research in your discipline can be emailed to you at a time that suits you.
LibKey Nomad is a web browser extension that enables you to see with one-click which research articles are available open access or through Edge Hill library subscriptions. Nomad identifies the quickest way to access the full-text of an article and helps avoid paywalls.
On Sunday 30th May there will be some disruption to Discover More due to an essential server move. Discover More will still be available for searching, but not all links to e-books and articles will work as expected. The A-Z of Journals and Databases will also not work during this time.
