Library Services have purchased two journal backfiles from Thieme Chemistry.
Synthesis is an international journal devoted to the advancement of the science of synthetic chemistry. It covers all fields of organic chemistry involving synthesis, including catalysis, organometallic, medicinal, biological, and photochemistry, as well as related disciplines. The Library previously offered access from 2003 to the present – this new purchase gives you full access back to the first issue in 1969.
Synlett reports research results and current trends in synthetic organic chemistry in short personalized reviews and preliminary communications. It covers all fields of science involving organic synthesis, including catalysis, organometallic, medicinal, biological, and photochemistry, but also related disciplines. This backfile extends the Library’s provision meaning that we now offer access from the first issue in 1989 to the present.
The best way to access both these titles is through Library Search where you will be asked to enter your College username and password when working off-site.
Following a successful trial, Library Services now offer full access to the popular resource, Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy.
Using short video lectures and 3D images created from dissected human specimens, Dr Robert Acland (Professor Emeritus of Surgery, University of Louisville School of Medicine) demonstrates the anatomy of the human body. The 5 volumes offer in-depth coverage of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons and organs and are presented in everyday, easy to understand language. Students can even test their knowledge with interactive questions and answers – ideal for exam time!
Library Services have recently purchased the following new titles for our e-journal collection.
Advances in Ecological Research Online
Advances in Ecological Research presents a wide range of reviews on all aspects of ecology. It’s currently under Imperial College co-editorship, and topics include the physiology, populations, and communities of plants and animals, as well as landscape and ecosystem ecology. The e-journal includes issues from 2011 onwards.
Silwood Park Campus Library also has print volumes for 1962 to 2014, which can be borrowed. Check Library Search to find individual volumes, and if you’re not at Silwood, sign in and use the Request option to have a volume sent to your campus library.
AIAA Meeting Papers
We now provide electronic access to all AIAA Meeting Papers (since 1963) – that means 5000 new papers each year. This is a key resource to those involved in aeronautical engineering and related disciplines. The Meeting Papers are made available through AIAA’s “digital library” – Aerospace Research Central.
We are also in the process of greatly increasing our electronic access to AIAA journals – more news on this in a few weeks.
Medical research titles
These titles have been moved from print only to e-journals to allow easy access across all campuses:
Over a year and half since the Library first offered JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, we are pleased to announce that, following user recommendations from staff and researchers, we have recently subscribed to JoVE Science Education and JoVE Developmental Biology. These additions extend our provision to give Imperial staff and students access to the full suite of JoVE products.
JoVE is a peer reviewed scientific journal with over 4000 videos which are indexed in subject-relevant databases, including PubMed/MEDLINE, SciFinder and Scopus.
JoVE Science Education is particularly useful for helping undergraduates learn laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations. It contains a number of collections including General Laboratory Techniques, Basic methods in Cellular and Molecular Biology, and Essentials of Biology. The collections are constantly growing and recent additions include Essentials of Genetics and Essentials of Cell Biology.
You can access JoVE directly at http://www.jove.com or via the link in the Library Search record where you will be asked to enter your College username and password if you are working off-site.
For queries about JoVE please contact library staff using ASK the Library or post a comment here – we’d love to get your feedback!
