New Database: JISC e-Collections

The Library now has access to new database JISC e-Collections. This online resource gives you access to 3 different sets of data:

  • JISC MediaHub is a new multimedia platform offering a wealth of digital image, film and sound collections accessible from a single interface. The new platform offers access to free-at-the-point-of-use images, film and sound content licensed for educational and research use, via an easy-to-use interface.

  • JISC HistoricBooks contains the full text or page images of over 350,000 books published in England from 1475 to 1900. The service draws together content from two of the best-known and longest-established early book collections (EEBO and ECCO) and well as additional unique titles from the BL 19th Century Collection.

  • JISC JournalArchives consolidates journal archives from many different publishers to provide a single platform for simple and fast cross-searching and full text access across more than 450 journals. More titles will be added this year to bring the collection to over 600 titles.

To log in to these resources, search for Aston University and enter your network username and password. Please comment on this post or email library@aston.ac.uk if you have any further queries about this service.
