Improvements to HONNI discovery service

A number of improvements have recently been made to the HONNI Catalogue and resource discovery service:

  1. The basic search screen now uses a tabbed search facility. The ‘New Search’ link redirects to the basic search screen instead of the HONNI home page, which ensures that you remain logged in and do not lose previous searches when you click ‘New Search’.
  2. The ‘Electronic Resources’ category under Resource Types now accurately includes all e-journals as well as e-books. Previously many of these were missing due to the way in which the system identified resources for inclusion but this problem has now been resolved.
  3. The results display has been cleaned up to help ensure that there are no entries in the holdings table for items which are not available.

There have been other small changes to improve the display and we are continuing our efforts to improve the system.  Issues such as the number of e-journal links displayed and the Resource Type categories used for refining results are high on the agenda.  Information about further developments will be posted to the Library Notices as it becomes available.

New Full-Text Journals now available

The Medical & HSC Library has recently purchased a substantial collection of electronic journals to be made available to HSC members of the Library:

  • Wiley Medicine & Nursing Collection containing 418 titles
  • 20 individual journals as shown below

All the new journals are now available in full text right up to the current issue to help you keep abreast of current practice, research and development.  You can connect to them via the HONNI catalogue or directly from the images below.  Just log in with your library card number and password.

The titles were selected based on user feedback and an assessment of current holdings.  The Library tries to acquire as many key full text journals as possible in line with our strategic aim to make most resources available electronically to ensure equality of access for all HSC staff wherever they are based.

Given the funding challenge, complete electronic access is difficult to achieve.  In support of our bid to retain current funding levels in the face of the ever-increasing cost of resources, we would ask users to stress the value of the service when any opportunity arises.

HONNI is now linked to Google Scholar

If you’re doing a Google Scholar search, you can now see at a glance if the full text of a particular result in available via HONNI.

  2. Click Settings
  3. Click Library Links
  4. Use the search bar to search for HONNI
  5. HONNI – Full Text from HONNI will appear as an option underneath the search box (other options, e.g. Queen’s University Belfast – QConnect, might already be displayed) – tick the box beside HONNI -Full Text from HONNI
    HONNI  in Google Scholar
  6. Click Save

You will be returned to the Google Scholar homepage.  Now, when you run a search, ‘Full Text from HONNI’ will appear beside results from HONNI subscribed journals.  Click on this link, log in with your HONNI details when prompted, and a HONNIConnect window will open, containing a link to the full text.

If you are logged in to Google, the above settings should be saved permanently and applied to every computer on which you use Google Scholar.
