IEEE Xplore Digital Library Enhancements

This week, the first IEEE documents in HTML became available in IEEE Xplore.

These first HTML articles mark the beginning of weekly additions of thousands of HTML-formatted documents to IEEE Xplore. By the end of 2012, you will see nearly 200,000 articles in this new format.

IEEE Xplore subscribers will automatically have access to the HTML versions of documents, as per existing subscription terms.

The dynamic new design redefines how IEEE publications are displayed online. Presenting cutting-edge IEEE articles from select publications in an elegant, state of the art, HTML layout provides a richer and more interactive research experience that allows you to:

  • Scan and interpret articles in under 60 seconds using “Quick Preview”
  • Navigate between sections of long articles with intuitive floating navigation
  • Effortlessly explore text, figures, equations, and multimedia files
  • Quickly view and copy mathematical equations, expressions, and formulas
  • Enhance your research with recommendations of related articles

The collection of articles available in HTML will build rapidly over the next several months, with a current focus on all IEEE journal content from 2001 to present. You will also start to see conference papers from 2001 and later in the new format by the end of this year. Magazine and Standards will follow in 2013, with over 2 million HTML articles available by the end of 2014.

Other new features also added to IEEE Xplore this month:

  • Share IEEE Xplore documents on social media sites
    Social media buttons now appear on all abstract pages so you can easily share links to IEEE Xplore articles through Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
  • Filter to only show content included in your subscription
    IEEE has expanded the popular search filter that allows users to “show only content in my subscription” to all IEEE Xplore subscriptions. You can find this filter on the search results page and in Advanced Search.
  • View a history for Top 100 Documents Downloaded by month
    Browse the most popular search terms and top downloaded documents by month plus see an archive of top downloaded documents from previous months.
  • Coming Soon: Save documents to Project Folders
    My Projects allows users to create personal project folders within IEEE Xplore to help organize documents by project or topic. Save documents to an unlimited number of folders, personalize with project descriptions, and add notes and tags to individual articles as you save them to projects. Sign in with your personal IEEE Account to access this feature.

University of Virginia readers may access IEEE Xplore from the Library’s Research Portal Page.

Microsoft Academic Search

Microsoft Academic Search (MAS) is a free academic search engine developed by Microsoft Research, which also serves as a test-bed for many research ideas in Data Mining, Named Entity Extraction and Disambiguation, Data Visualization, etc. As a research prototype, the coverage of MAS is still very limited in certain domains. We appreciate your feedback and contribution.

Microsoft Academic Search provides many innovative ways to explore academic publications, authors, conferences, journals, organizations and keywords, connecting millions of scholars, students, librarians, and other users.

All-New Virgo Library Catalog

Now You Can Search for Books AND Journal Articles At the Same Time!

The University Library catalog, Virgo, has been greatly enhanced to include journal articles from many publishers. It features a simple and fast search engine that helps you discover relevant information on any topic from the University of Virginia Library collections. Virgo is the place to start your research in scholarly journal and newspaper articles, books, videos, maps, manuscript collections, music scores and more. From your search results page, one click will display the full text of an article or tell you whether or not a book is on the shelf.

Virgo’s new integrated article search is part of a suite of online services the Library offers to researchers through the new Research Portal which provides access to the specialist databases – the recommended approach for those who are working on in-depth literature reviews.

For more information about the new Virgo interface or the Research Portal stop by any UVa Library or contact your subject librarian.

Green Energy Portal Launched

Green Energy Portal Launched for Quick Public Access to Renewable Energy Research

Oak Ridge, TN Green energy-related research and development (R&D) results are now more easily accessible through a new online portal, DOE Green Energy.  The free public portal was launched on the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) within the Office of Science.  The site is designed to ease access to green energy R&D information for use by researchers, scientists, educators, students and the general public.  Researchers can use the DOE Green Energy portal to speed scientific discovery and innovation; business and industry can use the R&D to stimulate economic growth related to renewable energy.  Educators, students, and the public can discover applications of renewable energy science and energy efficiency best practices.  The portal provides technical documents from thousands of R&D projects conducted at DOE National Laboratories and by DOE-funded awards at universities.

DOE Green Energy contains both current and historical research, including bibliographic citations, technical reports and patent information on different types of renewable energy resources and energy conservation.  Subject areas include but are not limited to solar, wind, bioenergy, hydroelectric, geothermal, tidal and wave power, and energy storage.

An easy-to-use search box allows users to selectively download, at no cost, DOE bibliographic citations and associated detailed full-text research reports and patents focusing on renewable energy and energy efficiency science and technology.  The website also includes a news feed provided by the DOE Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy program.

Using Wolfram|Alpha in the Classroom

Wolfram|Alpha is a free online computational knowledge engine that generates answers to questions in real time by doing computations on its own vast internal knowledge base.   Its long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone.  This can be valuable to educators (and students) in many ways. 

You can learn more about Wolfram|Alpha for Educators (and others) at http://www.wolframalpha.com/educators/
