EThOS Webinar

EThOS Webinar: Using doctoral theses in your research, a guide to EThOS

EThOS (http://ethos.bl.uk, Electronic Theses Online Service) is the national database for PhD theses, managed by the British Library.

The British Library is organising a free webinar to learn how to use EThOS.

You can find out how to search for and download theses. Also, if you are a PhD student, you can find out what will happen to your thesis once it's completed.
This webinar is aimed at researchers, students, librarians and anyone
who is interested in finding and using PhD theses.

The webinar will be hosted by Sara Gould, Development Manager at the British Library, who manages the EThOS service.

Sara will also answer questions after the webinar.

The webinar is on Thursday 13th February, 2014, 15.00 GMT.

Changes to Web of Knowledge/Science: Sunday 12th January

A major change to the Web of Knowledge interface is scheduled for this Sunday, 12th January. The name ‘Web of Knowledge’ will be replaced with ‘Web of Science’. The databases currently known as ‘Web of Science’ will be rebranded as ‘Web of Science Core Collections’. There will be significant changes to the look and feel of the database. There should be no changes to search process and if you have saved searches/alerts these should continue to work as expected. No URLs are changing so existing links/bookmarks should also continue to work.
