New full-text linking tool now available from BSC Library!

The BSC Library is pleased to announce the introduction of a new service, Articles@BSC. Articles@BSC is an OpenURL revolver we have licensed from SerialsSolutions. SerialsSolution has been the provider of our Periodicals@BSC service, an online tool which helps our users identify and link to the full-text periodicals to which the Library has access. Articles@BSC goes a step beyond Periodicals@BSC. Periodicals@BSC answers the question “Does BSC have on-line access to the periodical title?” but it is then up to the user to navigate to the article through a sometimes ponderous process. We think it is a great way to take advantage of the over 27,000 electronic journals to which BSC has access. To use Articles@BSC, just do a search from one of many of the Indexes and Databases available from the Library’s home page. As you look at citations, you will see the Articles@BSC listing and sometimes the BSC image: Let us know if you have questions and comments.

Wikipedia - on the level?

There is an interesting article on Wikipedia in today's (9/4/2007) Birmingham News. It is about the accuracy of Wikipedia and the ability for most anyone to change entries. Take a look at: http://www.al.com/news/birminghamnews/index.ssf?/base/news/118889437773340.xml&coll=2 This is a good example of the fact that not everything you see in Internet is correct.
