INFO: New-look Scopus database

InfoLinks

The Scopus database at http://www.scopus.com/  introduced a new streamlined interface over the weekend:

  • It is now more action driven – some items/options only appear active when the user has performed a search e.g. the Export option will only become available when the user has selected results to export
  • The re-design is described as “enhancing readability”
  • There’s much more detail available from a Scopus blog post at http://blog.scopus.com/product-releases but most current users of the database (one of the heaviest used databases that we subscribe to) will continue to use the database with little difficulty – you just need to adjust to the new look!

Library workshops will include information on the new search interface where relevant – more information on our free workshops for February and March is available in an earlier post at http://aberdeenunilib.wordpress.com/2014/01/29/library-workshops-places-still-available-on-our-free-library-workshops/

If you have any queries or difficulties with the new interface library staff will be happy to help.
