Mobile Device Access
Anywhere/Anytime Access also extends to a mobile device at http://m.webofknowledge.com.
With this new mobile interface, all of the tools and services your institution has access to is available using their Web of Knowledge ID and password. Because Web of Knowledge’s optimization is site-wide, there is no app to download or keep updated. The mobile version has the ability to search within individual products (Web of Science, BIOSIS, Inspec, etc.), as well as, the All Databases Search.
Other features include: sort, refine, email, add records to EndNote® Web, link to full text, OpenURL, view times cited counts, citation score card, search history.
Vardha Nicola Bennert says that:
There will be a rare Venus Transit
next week Tuesday, June 5th,
visible from SLO
between 3:06pm and sunset.
Together with the astronomy club,
we will put up our solar viewing telescopes
on the Cal Poly campus
on Dexter lawn by the library
between 3pm and ~7:30pm or so.
There will also be plenty of solar viewing glasses
to borrow (please return!).
Please remember to never look at the sun directly.
Even sunglasses are not enough,
you need special filters and solar viewing glasses.
Historically, this is a very important event
that allowed astronomers to measure the size of the solar system.
This will most likely be your last chance to see the Venus Transit in
your life time – the next one is in 2117…
“There have been several exciting developments since the last Reaxys update, notably the integration of PubChem into Reaxys, the move to bi-weekly content updates and more. Any structure searches done in Reaxys are now run across the PubChem compounds at the same time and in the same interface – increasing the number of compounds being searched which is valuable for any prior-art activities and researchers can now generate synthetic pathways for PubChem compounds not in Reaxys via Reaxys’ similarity searching.”
Thursday May 24, 2 pm: MacKenzie Smith, UCD University Librarian,
speaks on “Data Papers in the Network Era”
What: “Data Papers in the Network Era”
When: Thursday, May 24, at 2:10 p.m.
Where: Library, Data Studio (Room 111C)
Who: MacKenzie Smith, UCD University Librarian

You are invited to join our upcoming FREE Reaxys webinar.
The Reaxys webinar on inorganic and organometallic chemistry is scheduled for May 24th 16:00 Amsterdam time (10am in New York).
In just 45 minutes (including time for questions) you will learn how to:
- Draw and search for organometallic compounds
- Set up search strategies for finding inorganics and organometallics
- Use ligand codes

They have changed the cited reference capture process to give users a clearer, more comprehensive picture of the scholarly impact of their work, including full cited reference data capture.
Users can also mark and export cited references from an article’s bibliography, search for a cited article or book title, and
display all known authors and their position.

Katie Jeffery, a Cal Poly grad, will be joining the Data Studio
opening next Thursday morning to demo a cool interactive 3D “digital
video globe” that displays data of various kinds: “Magic Planet.”
It’s primarily marketed to museums and schools, but Katie will be
bringing it to Cal Poly to help us celebrate, and she’ll be leading a
demo at 1:30 pm the same day (Thurs April 26), in the Data Studio
According to Katie, “Magic Planet includes extensive ready-made
exhibits as well as drag and drop animations, feature films and
exhibits including: tours of the solar system, plate tectonics, etc.
These have been developed by organizations such as NASA and the
European Space Agency. … Magic Planet is currently used by
organizations such as: American Museum of Natural History in NY,
Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, NASA , NOAA and may others.”
Current installations can be seen at:
