SpringerLink Site Changes Coming Soon
November 13, 2012
The following information will be of interest to Wright State University faculty and students who have individual accounts on SpringerLink, the site for online journals, books, and protocols published by Springer:
SpringerLink will be migrating to a new online platform on Monday, November 26. If users have set up individual accounts for saved searches or alerts (“My SpringerLink”), these will not be migrated. New individual accounts, if desired, will need to be set up once the transfer has been completed. Please review the changes and the process for setting up new individual accounts.
- Springer will redirect all users to the new SpringerLink upon migration. So whether you find a Springer article on Google, via our catalogue or even using an old Springerlink direct url, you will be redirected to the article on the new SpringerLink.
- Individual accounts, "My SpringerLink", from the old SpringerLink will unfortunately not be migrated. You will need set up a new profile/account at the new SpringerLink. Make sure to do this while within the institution’s IP range as you will then be automatically associated to the institution’s access rights. Meaning that remote access to Springerlink is set up immediately.
- Webinar training sessions are available throughout the coming months. During these sessions you will be informed about features and functionalities of the new SpringerLink where there will also be plenty of time to ask questions. We invite you to register for one of these training sessions via Springer training.
