Wiley Interscience down this weekend

Wiley Online Library will launch this weekend (August 7-8), completely replacing Wiley Interscience.  

Wiley InterScience will no longer be available from Saturday 7 August at 3a.m. CST and should return as Wiley Online Library on Sunday, August 8 at 11 p.m. CST.  Users may go to http://www.wileyonlinelibrary.com/info to find additional information.

While Wiley has indicated they will transfer all content and access from Wiley InterScience to Wiley Online Library, they also state that they cannot guarantee that all redirects will work in the long-term.   If problems arise, the Library will work with Wiley to reinstate access as soon as possible.

 


Articles Tab Links Have Changed

We have unveiled a new look in the Articles tab on the Rod Library home page.  The names of several links have changed.  The link that was called "Advanced Search (Panther Prowler)" is now Subjects A-Z (Panther Prowler).  The link that formerly said "View a list of databases A-Z" has been shortened to Databases A-Z.  The link that said "Find a journal or locate a known article" is now Known Article/Journal Search.

Another big change with the Articles tab is that the default search box now has a dropdown menu rather than searching just one database.  The dropdown menu includes broad subject categories from Panther Prowler, and also two individual resources: Academic OneFile and Google Scholar.  Those two resources are both also listed in the Databases A-Z list.

We made these changes to make it easier to find a wider variety of searches to try when looking for information.  Anybody who has questions or needs assistance is invited to click the Ask Us! link and to contact reference librarians or staff through one of the methods listed.

Best on the Street: 2010 Analysts Rankings

The Wall Street Journal recently published its 18th annual ranking of the best analysts in 44 industries. The survey includes interviews of the top-ranked analyst in each industry. A search of the Wall Street Journal (ProQuest edition) for "best on the street" turns up a list of articles with the interviews of analysts in each industry. Other finance publications such as Institutional Investor also publish rankings of analysts.
