Starting from July 2013, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) will make its digital publications available free of charge with an open access license.
By adopting this new publishing policy, UNESCO aligns its practice to its advocacy work in favor of Open Access and strengthens its commitment to the universal access to information and knowledge.
UNESCO already make some of their publications available to download free of charge so their website is definitely a good source of quality information.
Some examples of what you can download from UNESCO now:
A World of Science
A quarterly journal providing information on the work of UNESCO in the field of natural sciences.
I originally read about this open access news on the ‘New Research selected by LSE Library’ blog which reports on new research in a wide number of fields.
There are even more reasons to use e-books now with new features from Dawsonera. The main change I want to point out is the new look e-reader, but first a quick word on what you’ll see if you search within the Dawsonera site:
There are Enhanced Search Results that allow you to refine and it is easier to tell which content is within Sunderland subscriptions (there is a green padlock symbol which denotes this (a purple padlock means that the title is not within our subscription).
Now onto the new online e-reader. It seems a bit more intuitive, with improved navigation using side arrows, and the search and notes features in their own tabs beside the contents menu.
The print and copy buttons have moved to the top right of the e-reader and when you hover over them it indicates how much more you can print or copy (remember this is restricted due to copyright).
Don’t forget, we recommend that you start your search for e-books on the Library Catalogue.
The great thing about using the Library Catalogue is it too enables you to search across all of our providers at once, easily refine your searches and receive results that you can be sure are within our subscription.
If you’ve had a chance to use the new Dawsonera interface, let us know what you think, and if you have any questions about how to use the new features get in touch with us.
If you’ve been using e-books recently you may have noticed that Dawsonera, one of the suppliers of our e-books has a new look and some new features. This week I’ll focus on the great ways you can use the new interface.
