CABI’s Media release

9 June 2009

CABI has launched a new and improved version of its database platform CAB Direct, incorporating the leading bibliographic databases in life science information – CAB Abstracts and Global Health.

The new CAB Direct offers a better experience for students and researchers as they search for important life science information. The content on CAB Direct has not changed, but the new design will improve its discoverability – saving researchers time and effort.

“Researcher behaviours and expectations are evolving, and the new CAB Direct has been created to ensure we are evolving with them,” said Cristina Ashby, Product Development Manager at CABI. “New technologies have offered an excellent opportunity to create a better, more intuitive and effective product.”

Enhancements include:

• MyCABDirect – a personalised area where users can set-up email alerts and RSS feeds based on their search results; share information; and save important searches
• Faceted searching – users can finely filter information to fit their research needs, based on CABI’s indexing terms and metadata
• The capability to view full text at the search results level
• Improved user experience, through a more intuitive interface
• Suggestions for spelling variations

The new and improved CAB Direct will also abstract snippet views at search results level; save searches to social book marking sites and provide COUNTER compliant usage statistics.

CABI is also pleased to announce the number of full text articles available on CAB Direct, and all other platforms that host our products, has reached 50,000. “This milestone highlights a clear and growing benefit to our subscribers,” said Cristina Ashby. “With the substantial number of articles now available, and with a further 10,000 to be added by the end of the year, this collection of material is developing into a body of content that is of considerable importance in its own right.”

home Resources and Services SciFinder Scholar Security Issue

SciFinder Scholar Security Issue

Recently, a number of researchers throughout the world have gained access to SciFinder Scholar through the unauthorized use of U.S. faculty accounts and IDs on university campuses. Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) notified the MU Libraries this week that an unauthorized user in another country was accessing SciFinder Scholar using an MU account. Unauthorized users accessing this database are a violation of UM’s license agreement with CAS.

We have worked with the MU Department of Information Technology to identify the account and have addressed the issue with the account holder. While this particular violation has been addressed, we need to be aware that repeated violations can result in termination of the contract and loss of campus access to SciFinder Scholar.

Please remember to keep your passwords secure. Do not share them with anyone else.

If you feel that your password may be compromised, we encourage you to change your password.

Each time you login to SciFinder Scholar, the license agreement govering the usage displays. When you click on “Accept,” you are verifying to CAS that you have read the terms of the agreement and will abide by them. Please review the terms of agreement  (also available at: http://merlin.missouri.edu/node/439) and let us know if you have any questions.

New BioSystems Database from NCBI

Do you use pathways databases? Check out the NCBI BioSystems database.

BioSystems can be searched directly or accessed via links from other NCBI databases such as Entrez Gene, PubMed, PubChem Compound, and Protein.

Use BioSystems to list the genes, protein, and small molecules that are involved in a biological pathway; find the pathway in which a given gene or protein or specific small molecule is involved; retrieve 3D structures for proteins involved in a biosystem.
