IBSS database changes interface & web address

Database Changes over Summer:

IBSS (International Bibliography of the Social Sciences) has recently moved from the BIDS interface to the Ovid Silverplatter interface at http://arc.uk.ovid.com/. The BIDS version will be turned off in the next few months.

The Silverplatter interface offers several advantages, including the facility to cross-search several other databases within the social sciences and other subjects (including the politics databases IPSA and PAIS, and the Psychology database PsycINFO). Direct links to full text are also now available, where UniS has a valid subscription, via the LinkSource software.

The new interface is already available at the address above – login using your Athens password. It is also listed on the online databases list under “IBSS: International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (New interface)”.
