Duplicate coverage in Safari for some Books24X7 texts

September 6, 2019

Does your course use a text from the online database Books24X7? We are noticing some duplication in access between Books24X7 and the Safari multimedia collection, the later of which is still available to students, faculty, and staff because of the unique authentication method for the platform. You can access Safari using the link below, and using the links listed on our Web site. Use the search function on the Safari site to search for the textbook used in your class. IN some cases, an earlier or later edition may be available from Safari. There is also potential to find alternate titles that address the same topic as the original text used.

Unpaywall browser plugin

August 30, 2019

It is still possible to search for academic articles even without access to the Regis Library’s subscription databases using some of the tools mentioned in our post on library and information services alternative-tech solutions. Perhaps the biggest obstacle students will face is not finding the materials, but access to the materials. To help you find legal copies of articles listed on publishers web sites, Google Scholar results, and elsewhere, try the browser plugin Unpaywall. When viewing the Web page for the article, the Unpaywall icon will indicate if the item can be retrieved for free legally from another source. Hope this helps!

Safari eBooks still available

August 30, 2019

eBooks and other content in the Safari database is still available (yeah!) due to the unique authentication method used to access the Regis Library’s subscription to the database. To access the library’s subscription, use the link below and enter your regis email address ending in @regis.edu. No other information is required to access materials included in our subscription. However, once logged in, you can take steps to create your own account with the Safari platform for access to additional features.

Library & Information Services Alternative-tech Solutions

August 30, 2019

Due to the cyberattack on the university, many Regis Library resources and services are unavailable at this time. Please know that the faculty and staff of the Regis Library are on-site at the Dayton Memorial Library on the Northwest Campus ready to assist patrons. Patrons can access print journals, magazines, and newspapers on site, and can check out books and media from our collection. In addition, the Regis Library recommends the following online resources to help satisfy your information needs during this disruption in service:

Local Public Library Systems: you can access online databases, submit Prospector book requests, and place interlibrary loan requests after successfully creating an account with either system listed below. Please note that you will need to abide by the rules and policies associated with the library system whose services you access.

Denver Public Library – Any Colorado resident or student in-state attending a Colorado college or university may obtain a free Denver Public Library Card.

https://www.denverlibrary.org/library-card

Jefferson County Public Library: – Your ID doesn’t need to list a CO address, but new registrants must have an address in Colorado. Closest branch libraries are located in Arvada, Wheatridge, and Edgewater.

https://jeffcolibrary.org/faq/library-card/#faq_169276

Public databases and search engines: the search engines and database listed below allow researchers to search for and identify journal articles and academic publications. However, options to access the full-text document may be limited in some instances. When full-text is not available, try using the interlibrary loan service from one of the public library systems listed above.

Directory of Open Access Journals: DOAJ is an online directory that indexes and provides access to quality open access, peer-reviewed journals.Given that all journals listed in the directory are open access, users should expect to be able to access the full-text document for any article that appears in one of the journals listed.

https://doaj.org/

arXiv.org: a product from Cornell University, arXiv.org provides open access to 1,583,147 e-prints in the fields of physics, mathematics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, statistics, electrical engineering and systems science, and economics.

https://arxiv.org/

Google Scholar: a public search engine specific to academic publications. When available, look for links to the full-text document on the right hand side of the search results page.

https://scholar.google.com/

ERIC (Education Resources Information Center): a public database from the US Department of Education. The database indexes a wide range of academic journals related to the field of education and publications from the US Department of Education.

https://eric.ed.gov/

PubMed: a public database that comprises more than 30 million citations for biomedical literature from the MEDLINE database, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites (often paywalled).

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/

University repositories: many colleges and universities archive faculty publications in open online institutional repositories. Examples include the DASH (Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard), DSpace@MIT, and the Knowledge@UChicago repositories. A good way to search for and identify university repositories is to limit your Google search to the .edu domain, as in this example (notice the use of the site: .edu limit to narrow the scope of the search to academic sites). You may wish to also consult the list of open access disciplinary specific archives listed on the Open Access Directory project from Simmons University.

Call for Papers: Counseling and Family Therapy Scholarship Review

July 8, 2019

The Counseling and Family Therapy Scholarship Review (CFTSR) is pleased to announce a call for papers. CFTSR is an open-access publication hosted on the library’s digital repository platform. The Scholarship Review is a platform for unique perspectives on conventional knowledge and marginalized domains of information

The CFTSR’s aim is to promote higher-level insights and inspire breadth of worldview considerations, thereby stretching our collective counseling and family therapy reality box.

The CFTSR invites faculty, private practice clinicians, non-profit social services staff and graduate students to submit their original work to publish in our peer-reviewed online journal. As a refereed journal that recently emerged on the publication scene, your contribution will be instrumental in anchoring and stretching the journal’s sphere of influence.

The theme of this call for papers is Integrative Clinical Practice. We invite papers on a wide range of topics relevant to counseling and family therapy. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically through the Scholarship Review’s submission portal at: https://epublications.regis.edu/cftsr/

Initial Submission Deadline: 9.6.2019
The Scholarship Review publishes:
• Original and replication research
• Literature reviews
• Proposed advancements to counseling and systemic theory
• Social research
• Clinical case write-ups
• Personal narratives
• Concerns of social ethics
• Contemporary social trends
• Predictions for future biopsychosocial trends
• Socio-political commentaries
• Poetry and short stories

We hope you will consider submitting your manuscripts to the Counseling and Family Therapy Scholarship Review.
Thank you,
Editorial Board

All submissions selected will be peer-reviewed and published in an online format for open access. Publications will be available in online print version. The Scholarship Review provides digital object identifier (DOI) to all publications.
