Temporary access to additional resources spotlight: EBSCO Harvard Business Review Press Collection

One of the major resources which we have been given temporary free online access to response to the Covid-19 outbreak is the EBSCO Harvard Business Review Press Collection. It includes titles from HBR Press and covers topics such as: communication, decision-making, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, leadership, marketing, personnel management, strategic planning and more.

This resource will only be available until the 31st May 2020 so we wanted to highlight it so you all have chance to access the database and investigate what is on offer.

Digimap: new collection available

One of the key resources made available by the Library is Digimap. This is an online mapping and data delivery service from Edina and we have access to the following collections: Ordnance Survey, Historic, Geology, Marine, Environment, Aerial and Lidar.

We are pleased to announce that RGU students and staff can now access the Pilot Digimap collection as well. Pilot Digimap will give access to new datasets on a time-limited trial basis. This allows users to test and rate interest in the datasets using the star rating system in Pilot Roam. Edina will then investigate the datasets further based on the feedback and may make them permanently available.

Initially, Pilot Digimap will offer the following:

      • UKMap: a modern, highly detailed, feature-rich mapping database of Greater London.
      • UKBuildings: a unique database created and regularly updated to help you understand the age, structure, characteristics and use, of commercial, public and residential buildings across the UK.
      • UKLand: a maintained, national land information database providing a detailed consistent breakdown of the use of land across the UK.
      • EDINA Satellite data collection initially consisting of: Sentinel 2 derived cloud free optical mosaic for Great Britain, 2019 and Sentinel 2 derived Near Infrared mosaic for Great Britain, 2019.

These collections will be available for free through Pilot Digimap until 31st July 2020 and Edina will continue to add new datasets when they become available.

You can access Digimap from the Database A-Z list.
