INSPEC now available on ISI Web of Knowledge

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).

Karen Berryman, from IET (the publisher of INSPEC), will present this new platform and its special features in the Physics-Astronomy Library (351 LeConte) on Thursday, April 23, 2009, 2:30-3:30pm.

CDL has created an interim screen with links to both platforms, which will run parallel through June 30.

arXiview is a new iPhone app written by Dave Bacon, Physics Professor at the University of Washington. As posted on the arXiview website, you can:

  • browse arXiv categories
  • search arXiv by author, title, full text, without category restrictions.
  • save preprints to your iPhone
  • email articles to yourself or your colleagues
  • read PDFs in landscape and portrait mode
  • arrange your own category preferences.

The new app is also mentioned on Dave Bacon's The Quantum Pontiff blog and the Blog. Visit the iPhone Apps website for other arXiv apps.

MathSciNet access problems resolved

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.
