After two months of development, UNT Libraries is pleased to announce the release of a new interface for helping you find databases, e-journals, and e-books. As of December 17th, 2012, the library’s old Electronic Resources System has been retired, and the new replacement interface has become part of the Library Catalog.
We recognize that databases and e-journals are integral to academic research and teaching, and we have striven to ensure that the new interface is familiar enough that you can use it right away without throwing you off balance or requiring you to learn something brand new. That is one advantage of merging these functions with the catalog. In fact, the new interface allows you to use existing catalog features to help you find and manage these resources—records will now appear in your catalog searches, and you can save and export these records just as you always could with catalog records.
We believe that these new tools represent a substantial improvement over the previous, out-dated ER system, but, as always, we welcome your input and feedback about this new implementation.
