Do you want to see how to conduct a particular Biological procedure rather than just read about it? If the answer to that is Yes then perhaps accessing our subscription to the Biology module within JoVE (Journal of Visualised Experiments) would be of interest to you.
And to make it even more convenient to use two new mobile apps and a newly optimised version of the JoVE website have just been released enabling seamless access to content from any mobile device. You can now view JoVE videos (from the Biology module) on your iPhone, Android, tablet or other mobile device.
Did you know there is an app for Library, Special Collections and Museums (LSC&M) on the University’s iAberdeen app for iOS and Android smart phones?
The library app lets you search across LSC&M catalogues using our resource discovery tool, Primo. Key features include an option to login to My Account where you can view and renew your loans, view your requests for books, check for messages from the library, and view details of favourite titles saved to your personal e-Shelf.
Once logged in you are able to make an advance booking on an item from a Heavy Demand collection, recall a book out on loan to someone else, and request an item to be delivered to your home library from a remote store or library on a different campus.
We think this app offers a quick and easy way of accessing our catalogues, linking to our electronic resources, and much more – wherever you are, even when you are on the move!
Ebrary has introduced an alternative sign-in option to the current Facebook login for their iOS and Android mobile apps. You will be able to use an email address and password of your choice to login – but these must be configured under the “My Settings” menu on your main ebrary website.
When the mobile apps go live next week, you will be prompted to download the new version from the Apple App Store, Google Play, or the Amazon App Store.
Key features of ebrary apps include:
Online and offline reading
Easy download of full titles
Simple and advanced search options
Table of contents with relevancy rankings
Early check-in of ebrary’s e-books
Copy and paste with automatic citation for offline documents
Import and use documents from other sources
Available in English and Spanish
Ability to use up to 6 different devices with the same account
HeinOnline, an important legal research database, has launched an app for the iPhone and iPad.
Use the app to search the database (including by citation), view and download PDF files, browse by volume, and navigate through a volume using the table of contents. HeinOnline account/authentication is required.
Ebrary’s free app for the iPad® and iPhone® is now available from the App Store®. You will be able to access the database – both online and offline, as well use an option to import your own PDF documents – outside the ebrary platform – through the app itself.
We use Shibboleth to login to ebrary, so you need to use the Facebook sign in feature to open the app on your mobile device. All you need to do is link up your personal ebrary account to your Facebook account, then you can use the ebrary mobile app by signing in with your Facebook login.
This is what you need to do to set up your Facebook login link:
Go to your ebrary site and sign in to your ebrary account as usual
Once signed in, open the My Settings link at the top-right of the ebrary screen
Under Link your account to Facebook click Log In
If you have a Facebook account, enter your Facebook username and password and click Log In
If you don’t have a Facebook account, click Sign up for Facebook at the lower left
Once you’ve successfully logged in to your Facebook account, you’ll be ready to use ebrary’s mobile app
