Website improvements

Improvements were made to our website in Nov 2015 to improve user experience for account holders. We added multi-faceted search to the Catalogue, placed all subscriptions in one place, and all account details in one place.

Account holders may also notice we have responded to subscription management queries and programmed notifications to assist, including of expiring agreements.

We hope these changes will help with your work, please let us know if you have any feedback in relation to the website by emailing Oisan Man, Web Manager.

If your queries are related to subscriptions, please contact the Jisc Collections Helpdesk.

Jisc Historical Texts - Cover of the Month

From this month, the focus of this section is shifting to Jisc Historical Texts and some of the eyecatching covers available in the British Library collection.

With Autumn now upon us, the first cover alludes to an image so often associated with this time of year - that of leaves falling from a tree. It is from E Nesbit's 'Leaves of Life', a collection of her poetry, published in 1888.

This is just one of thousands of texts from the British Library 19th Century Collection which you can find at Jisc Historical Texts, part of the Jisc eCollections service.
