INSPEC, the premier database for physics, computer science, information technology, and electrical engineering is moving from Ovid to ISI Web of Knowledge. Beginning today, we have access to INSPEC through both platforms.
You can search all dates covered by INSPEC back to 1898. Special features include the ability to limit to review articles or other treatment types; refine your search results by author, classification, language, and more; link to related records, references, and "cited by" information from Web of Science; and much more. The new platform also allows powerful range searching for various numerical data (such as frequency, temperature, and voltage).
CDL has created an interim screen with links to both platforms, which will run parallel through June 30.

We have received several reports of problems accessing MathSciNet. The library has reported the problem, and we are working on resolving the issue, but we do not have an estimate of when access will be restored. In the meantime, library users may want to search Zentralblatt MATH as an alternative.
Update (4/14): As of this morning, access has been restored. Please contact Brian Quigley if you continue to have access problems.
Informaworld, the platform for Taylor & Francis' electronic journals and encyclopedias, will be unavailable due to essential maintenance on Friday, April 10 for approximately 8 hours starting at 4:00 p.m.
The 2009 edition of the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is now available for download at the UC distribution site. The CSD contains crystallographic information for organic molecules and metal-organic compounds. Please note:
The CSD is available for Windows, Mac and Linux users.
