Web of Science citation counts have been missing from off-campus AggreGator search results for the past two weeks. The problem can be fixed simply by logging in. After conducting an initial search in AggreGator, look for a message in the upper right corner of the screen (small white font in a dark grey banner) beginning with the words “Off Campus?” Follow the instructions to log in with your Allegheny Username and Password. After logging in, the Web of Science citation count will appear in the search results.

During these unprecedented times, a number of publishers have made their databases, ebooks, ejournals, and streaming video temporarily available for free. Library and Information Technology Services is closely monitoring these developments and adding content to AggreGator and the Database A-Z list whenever possible. This new guide lists the resources we have already added to AggreGator and the Database A-Z list. For added convenience to students and faculty now working from home, LITS has also added a new search box for searching only ebooks and full-text journals to the Library Services page.
Faculty, if there is an online resource you need for your class, please let us know by emailing LITS at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can fill out these forms to request ebooks or videos.
Today’s Tech Tip would merely like to draw attention to the resources available on the Library and Information Technology Services home page.
On the page, you will find links for resources for teaching, learning, and working remotely.
As always, we encourage you to reach out to us via email at email@example.com if you need assistance or have questions.
