Change in Serials Records in SIRSI

For the next week, you may encounter two types of electronic journal records in the catalogue.

The old type will have database names and coverage in the link (next to 'Internet Access':

Internet Access: Full text available from Institute of Physics: 03/01/2000 to present
Internet Access: Full text available from ScienceDirect Journals: 03/01/2000 to 11/30/2007

The new records will have links by subscribing institution:

Internet Access: University of Calgary users
Internet Access: Calgary Health Region users
Internet Access: Tom Baker Cancer Centre users

The appropriate link will take the user to a display of databases and coverage for the journal title.

For example, after clicking on University of Calgary users, a UofC user will see links to the Institute of Physics and Science Direct Journals.

The migration to the new type of record should take about six days.
