Improved electronic document delivery from the British Library: DRM Lite

From 27th January 2016, a new British Library delivery service called DRM Lite will be introduced making it easier to download and view the articles sent to you electronically from the British Library as part of the Inter-Library Loan Service. DRM Lite is an electronic delivery method that allows the British Library to supply secure encrypted documents directly to your desktop. The document is locked to a user rather than a machine so it can be viewed on a variety of desktop and mobile devices. Benefits of DRM Lite:

  • No need to install plugins or special software,
  • Access documents on any device with Adobe Reader X or above
  • Use different devices to access your documents; you are not restricted to using a PC
  • Once downloaded, you can save the document. This gives you access for a further 3 years.

How do I get articles via DRM Lite?

  • The process of requesting an inter-library loan is exactly the same as before. Requests should be made via the library’s online requesting form.
  • Before you can view your article you will need to have registered for On Demand with The British Library. Registering is free, just takes a few minutes and will only need to be done the first time. Once you have registered, you can use your username and password to access articles that have been supplied to you
  • If you are likely to be making use of our Document Supply service in the coming months why not register now so that you are all set up ready to start receiving documents? Click here to register now

For further information, contact your local HSC Library or see further blog posts.

Keep Up to Date with Zetoc Alerts

Would you like to keep up-to-date with a journal or topic?  Try Zetoc – available via HONNI.

Zetoc is the British Library’s Electronic Table of Contents database and covers over 29,000 journals and over 52 million article citations and conference papers.  Zetoc automatically emails you the contents pages of new issues of journal titles of your choice.  You can also be alerted to articles which mention particular keywords in the article title.  Email alerts that you receive from Zetoc then link you to the article if it is available via HONNI.

Another useful feature is Zetoc RSS which allows you to subscribe to RSS feeds for individual journal titles.

Sound useful?  Here’s how to set up a Zetoc alert

  1. To access Zetoc, please go to HONNI Databases A-Z and click ‘Zetoc Alert’ – you may need to enter your HONNI Username and password.
  2. Type your email address into Zetoc and give your alert a name.  Click ‘Create’.
  3. The next screen will confirm that your alert will run for a year.  Click ‘Add Journals’
  4. Use the Journal Selection Options on the right-hand side of the screen to search for the journal about which you wish to be alerted (e.g. British Medical Journal).
  5. Journal will appear in results.  Click ‘Add’ beside the journal you want.
  6. Journal will be added to the left-hand ‘Display List Contents’ section.  Click ‘Journal Selection Options’ to search for more journals, if you wish to be alerted about multiple titles.  Repeat the above steps to add these other titles to your alert.
  7. And that’s it!  Every time a new issue of your chosen journal(s) is published, you will receive an email listing the articles appearing in it.  Provided that you have Zetoc already open on your computer, you can click on the links in the email to access article records in Zetoc, where you will be able to click HONNIConnect to check for the full text of articles.

If you require any help using Zetoc alerts, please contact your Subject Librarian.

Get the most from ClinicalKey: create a personal account

Your HONNI log-in allows you to access ClinicalKey for free. But to use all the great features of ClinicalKey, such as being able to download PDF content and add images to your Presentation Maker, you also need to set up a personal account in ClinicalKey itself.

Access ClinicalKey via HONNI as normal. If you already have an Elsevier account (e.g. via ScienceDirect), click Login. Otherwise, click Register.

Click register

Fill in the short registration form, then click Register again.

After a few moments, your name, as you typed it into the registration form, should appear in the top right corner of ClinicalKey.

You can now access all features of ClinicalKey. If you log out of and shut down ClinicalKey and access it later via HONNI, you should automatically be logged into your personal account as well – i.e. your name should appear in the top right corner – because your personal log-in is now linked to your HONNI log-in.

If your PC, laptop or mobile device is allowed to sit idle, your ClinicalKey session may time out, and you may be logged out automatically i.e. instead of your name, Login/Register will appear in the top right corner of ClinicalKey.

To log back into your personal ClinicalKey account, click Login. Ignore the username and password boxes (these probably won’t work due to the set-up of HONNI). Instead, click Other institution login (mobile users may need to scroll down to see this).

Other institution login

In the Search for your institution and click the name to login box, type HONNI, then click on DHSSPS: honni-HSC Login

Click dhssps honni hsc login

You will be taken back to the HONNI log-in screen. Log in with your HONNI details.

 HONNI login

You will be returned to ClinicalKey, and your name will appear in the top right corner i.e. you will be logged back into your personal ClinicalKey account.

If you have any questions about your personal account or any other aspect of ClinicalKey, please contact us.
