Redirect your Academic Search Premier permalinks to Academic Search Complete

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

UpdatedThe Library has upgraded from the Academic Search Premier (ASP) database to Academic Search Complete (ASC). ASC contains more full-text journal coverage, providing you with better access to the content you need! If you have created permalinks (also known as permanent URLs, PURLs, or Bookmarkable URLs) to individual articles, journals, or search results within the Academic Search Premier database, we encourage you to update your links to point to Academic Search Complete, rather than ASP. Access to ASP will remain indefinitely, however, users may use permalinks to access content in Academic Search Premier and then continue to search in ASP, therefore missing the additional content available in Academic Search Complete.

StarUpdating permalinks is quick and easy, and requires a simple change to a single letter. To update an ASP link to ASC, simply change the portion of the URL that says “db=aph” to “db=a9h”.

For example, a permalink in Academic Search Premier (ASP): http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=aph&AN=91666808

To change the permalink to Academic Search Complete (ASC):  http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=a9h&AN=91666808

If you need to update permalinks from CINAHL with full text to CINAHL Complete, the process is very similar. A link in CINAHL Full Text will look similar to: http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=c8h&AN=2012993036. It will need to be updated to: http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=2012993036. Essentially replacing the c8h database code to ccm.

Please contact the Web Services Librarian if you have any questions.

National Aboriginal Day (NAD) took place across the Country on June 21st, and celebrated the heritage, diverse cultures, and achievements of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples in Canada. The Kelowna Library had a feature display during the month of June, showcasing Aboriginal culture and resources. Visit the Library to borrow the books and documentaries that were featured, or go online to view streaming videos, borrow and download e-books, or read articles. Also available now is the Truth and Reconciliation Committee’s report, “Honouring the Truth”. A summary of the report can be found in the Library catalogue, OCtopus, or here.

Check out the short video below to learn more about NAD, or visit the Government of Canada website.
