Later hours at the Engineering Library start March 2

Beginning March 2, the Engineering Library will be extending its hours to include later hours as a pilot project through Spring 2015. During the pilot, the hours for the Spring and Fall semesters will be:

  • Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.-midnight
  • Friday: 9 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Saturday: 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
  • Sunday: 1 p.m.-11 p.m.

Please note the new opening hour and consult the Library Hours page to check the hours for particular days. The library will evaluate usage during the pilot to determine whether the extended hours will be continued past Spring 2015. We thank the College of Engineering for providing funding for this pilot project, and the entire office of ASUC Senator Quinn Z Shen, Thiagu Sezhian, and Byran Yang for proposing the idea and gathering student support for it.

Web of Knowledge interface changes

Web of Science

Web of Knowledge databases including Web of Science, BIOSIS Previews, CAB Abstracts and Global Health, Data Citation Index, Inspec, and Zoological Record deployed a new user interface beginning January 12, 2014. Among the changes:

  • The default search page now features a single search box for the Topic field; as before, the field can be changed and search boxes for additional fields can be added
  • Web of Science cited reference searches must now be selected from a drop-down menu above the search box
  • The UC-eLinks icon to access full text is now found under a button labelled "Full Text" on the search results and article record pages
  • Search details are visible after clicking on a link labelled "More" under the "You searched for" heading on the search results page
  • An "Add to Marked List" button replaces the former icon on the search results page
  • A "Create Citation Alert" link and icon replace the former button on article pages

Video tutorials on specific features of the new interface can be viewed here: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/training/web-of-science/

Live online trainings occur monthly. This month they begin Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 11 am PST. The trainings are free, but advance registration is required: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/training/

Quick Reference Cards and factsheets for many Web of Knowledge resources can be downloaded here: http://wokinfo.com/training_support/guidesfactsheets/

Now Available from the Library: Scopus! (Trainings coming later this month...)

We are happy to announce that the California Digital Library has purchased a one-year trial to Scopus, a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and more, with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.


Scopus contains over 50 million records in all disciplines, with more than half the content originating from outside North America.

  • Indexes over 21,000 journals, conference proceedings, trade publications, and book series in sciences, technology, medicine, arts, humanities, and social sciences
  • Includes over 5.3 million conference papers
  • Includes 100% of the Medline database
  • Has more than 23 million patents from 5 patent offices
  • Includes citations back to 1823
  • Cited references available from 1996 forward

Use the Journal Analyzer tool to compare journals on a variety of parameters:

  • scientific prestige (SJR)
  • citation impact (SNIP)
  • number of times a journal has been cited
  • number of articles published per year
  • percent of articles not cited per year
  • percent of published articles that are reviews

Scopus also integrates with Embase: Records in Embase with citing articles will have a link to open Scopus so one can view the citing articles. Also, Scopus is considered an essential database to search when conducting systematic reviews

The Sheldon Margen Public Health Library is sponsoring a drop-in hands-on Scopus training on Tuesday Feb. 25, 2014 from 11am to 12pm at the Bioscience Library Training Room, VLSB. Come try it out! No registration required. Use the training room PCs or bring your own laptop.

In addition, representatives from Scopus will conduct a demonstration, also in the Bioscience Library Training Room, on Thursday Feb. 27 from 11-12. Again, no pre-registration required.

» Scopus Training Videos

UC-wide access to Scopus ends on December 31, 2014; at that time each campus will decide whether or not to subscribe.
