With the recent upgrade, LINC+ has even more functions than before!
Now, you can search not just the usual stuff from the library catalogue—books, journals, microfilms and multi-media materials—but also articles. These articles are retrieved from four pre-selected databases, namely Business Source Premier, JSTOR, Scopus and Web of Science.
In the middle of the page after some catalogue results, “Top results for articles” shows the top three results from the pre-selected databases.
Clicking on format>articles to the left of the page lets you browse the search results by the four databases. You can also choose articles that are either peer reviewed or have full text. To search other databases simultaneously, click on “More resources” and you’ll be led to the federated search engine InfoGate.
When you’re prompted to login, do use your staff or student card number and library PIN instead of your NUSNET ID and password as you usually do for accessing our subscribed e-resources.
More Searchable Fields & Google Books Preview
Before the latest enhancements, some searches were only possible in LINC, the classic catalogue, but not in LINC+. But now you can search LINC+ by call number, ISBN, and ISSN. For RBR materials, you can also search by either module number or name of the lecturer. For the bright-eyed ones, you may have noticed that if a Google book preview is available for the book you search, you can launch the preview directly within LINC+.
With each new batch of enhancements, LINC+ becomes even more effective!
