If you have any feedback regarding this resource please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following is information from Henry Stewart publishing:
The Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection contains over 800 online audio-visual seminar-style talks each specially commissioned by leading scientists (including Nobel Laureates) from around the world.
The Collection is highly prized for giving you the ability to virtually attend world class seminars, by leading thinkers and authorities from around the world, in one online resource – wherever, whenever, and as many times as you like.
As well as being an excellent way for researchers, teachers and students to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in their field, it is also a great way to quickly become immersed in a new area.
As from 1st August the records for York Hospital Library will no longer be available via the University of York catalogue. They will be available instead via that of York St John. This is part of the Hospital Library part-relocation to York St John's (see http://www.york.ac.uk/library/news/index.htm#ydh for further information).
This new catalogue link will be made available on the Library tab on the new VLE.
Scopus is now available via the University of Hull Library (Hull Athens account required). A link will be available via the Library tab on the new HYMS VLE but in the meantime you can access the resource by going to http://library.hull.ac.uk/screens/erm_index.html. (Select Login > Athens Login from the Scopus screen.)
The subscription for Scopus is currently for one year only with a view to evaluating usage and feedback in the hope that the University will agree funding for a longer term so if you find Scopus useful please feedback to email@example.com.

This does not affect Hull e-resources which will still be fully accessible only via Hull Athens.
