How to Access Journals from the iVEC Network

Seeing as many of us are on the iVEC network, I thought I would just send out some notes on any easy way of accessing subscription journals, as if you were on the Curtin network:

With Google scholar, use: http://scholar.google.com.au.dbgw.lis.curtin.edu.au/ For some results this gives a “Find It @ Curtin” link which takes you to the full text database if it exists.

For NASA ADS: Log in to ADS, then at the top right click “my account”. Click “library link settings”. In library link server put “http://link.library.curtin.edu.au/openurl”. Save.

If you append .dbgw.lis.curtin.edu.au to many journal websites this will get you the article (assuming the library has subscribed to it). eg. www.journals.uchicago.edu.dbgw.lis.curtin.edu.au http://www.oed.com.dbgw.lis.curtin.edu.au

The following script will automagically append the dbgw link to a url that you wish to access. javascript:void(location.href=location.href.replace(/(http[s]?:\/\/)([\w.]*)(.*)/,'$1$2.dbgw.lis.curtin.edu.au$3')) save this as a new bookmark. Then when you are prompted to login or pay for a journal you can just click the link instead. If you are not logged into the library site then you'll be asked to login first using your staff/student id.

If you can't find something, document delivery is free for post-grads & staff and they will buy and send you an e-copy if it exists…
