Change in access to Library e-resources

By Anna Di Iorio, on 18 July 2008

Zetoc (Copyright © Zetoc) 

A small number of electronic resources which currently require an Athens login (using UCL username and password) will change their login mechanism from 31st July 2008.

Affected resources include Zetoc (journal tables of contents and email alerts) and CrossFire (chemistry), plus some geography tools (Digimap, Landmap, Go-Geo!) and Film and Sound Online.

After 31st July, the Athens login button will disappear. You will see instead only a login button labelled  ‘Login via UK federation’.  You will then need to select UCL from a list of UK institutions, before entering your UCL username and password as usual at the UCL login screen.

Digitised card catalogue

By Anna Di Iorio, on 1 July 2008

A digitised catalogue card

UCL Library Services is pleased to let you know that the central sites card catalogue has been digitised and can now be searched online at http://cardcat.ucl.ac.uk.

The card catalogue forms a record of items acquired by UCL Library Services until the early 1980s, when the computerised catalogue began. Many of the items recorded in the card catalogue will be housed in the Library’s Special Collections or off-site Store

A continuous programme of adding records to eUCLid, the online catalogue, is in place. Therefore, it is advisable to use eUCLid  first to look for material currently held by any part of the Library.

Further instructions on how to use the digitised card catalogue can be found at http://cardcat.ucl.ac.uk.
