Platform Migration of e-Resources in January 2005

1. Electronic Databases on SilverPlatter ERL Platform
Taking effect from 1 January 2005, the four existing subscribed electronic databases on SilverPlatter ERL platform will be migrated to new platforms in various hosts. This change will enable us to have the benefit of simultaneous unlimited HKBU usersíŽ access.

2. Cochrane Library
The Updated Software's Internet version of the Cochrane Library will not be available after 2 January 2005. Instead, the Cochrane Library will be hosted on Wiley InterScience.

You can access the newly subscribed library e-resources on the library homepage at: http://www.hkbu.edu.hk/lib/new/newdbs.html
