Even if you think you’ve never heard of Springer, you have probably used a Springer journal or ebook at some point. One of the most prolific scholarly publishers of research in science, technology and medicine, the library has access to thousands of full-text journals and tens of thousands of ebooks from Springer.
On November 26, all of these books and journals will be migrated over to a new SpringerLink platform which looks and works a lot like the library search Summon, but with some additional features. A search in the new Springer will search all the content on the site by default, but once you are looking at results you can remove ones that BGSU does not have access to and further refine your search by content type (article, book chapter, etc.) and discipline (chemistry, life sciences, medicine, etc.). Alternately, you can begin your research by browsing publications in these disciplines, or by browsing titles of each type.
Important note: personal accounts on the current SpringerLink platform will NOT migrate to the new platform. Therefore, after November 26, any saved searches, journal alerts, or folders you have created in the current SpringerLink platform will be lost. Users can sign up now for personal accounts on the new platform and migrate their saved information.
