Dictionary of Natural Products – trial through August 18, 2015

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

By faculty request, we are evaluating CRC’s Dictionary of Natural Products on CRC’s CHEMNetBASE platform. This is a comprehensive database of 170,000 natural products effectively organized into a key information product. The wealth of data provided includes names and synonyms, formulae, chemical structures, CAS Registry Numbers, extensive source data, uses and applications, physical state, melting point, boiling point, pKa, and key literature citations. In addition a comprehensive type of compound classification scheme brings together compounds that are biogenetically related. All this information is readily searchable by text or by substructure, using flexible and intuitive software.

Let us know what you think – email feedback to eaccess-admin@middlebury.edu or your liaison.

Is there a journal, database, or other resource you think the library should subscribe to? Let us know at go/requests.

BrowZine – trial through August 10, 2015

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

BrowZine is an application that allows you to browse, read and follow thousands of the library’s subscribed scholarly journals from your Android and iOS mobile devices, all in a format optimized for your tablet or smartphone! (and coming soon – available on the web!) if we subscribe to it, you can browse the journal and read and/or download the articles during this trial. We think the ability to BROWSE current online journals in your field – reminiscent of the time you might walk down the aisle of current print journals in the library – is the real value of this service.

And there’s more than browsing – built to accompany your searching needs, items found in BrowZine can easily be synced up with Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks, Dropbox or other services to help keep all of your information together in one place.

Download the app here. BrowZine

Let us know what you think – please email your feedback to eaccess-admin@middlebury.edu or your liaison.

Is there a database, online journal or service you think the library should trial or subscribe to? Let us know at go/requests.
