Springer Changes to Affect Michigan Tech Users

Springer journals and ebooks are moving to a redesigned Web platform on Monday, November 26, 2012.  The migration is scheduled to occur between 4:00 am and noon EST. While no service interruptions are expected, the change is significant in these ways:

Redirection and Linking:

You should be automatically redirected to the new platform regardless of your starting point:  Husky Fetch services, Google, indexing databases, our Voyager catalog or old Springerlink connections.

My SpringerLink:

Individual accounts from the old SpringerLink will unfortunately not be migrated. Please go to link.springer.com and set up a new profile/account. Be sure to do this while connected to an on-campus computer so that your account is associated with the library’s Springer-licensed books and journals.

Support:

The librarians are pleased to assist you in this transition and to make the most of the Springer publications.  Contact us for assistance

Training:

Springer is offering instructional webinars sessions during the coming months to aid you taking full advantage of features available. You may register for these webinars here: Springer training page.
