HEAL-Link (Hellenic Academic Libraries Link), in the framework of its activity to strengthen Open Access in Greece, explores systematically the ways and means for the transition to a new scientific publication landscape, which will be sustainable and beneficial to the public academic and research institutions. In this process, HEAL-Link participates in international initiatives, evaluates the developments and weighs them, taking into account the benefit for the Greek scientific community. HEAL-Link's Declaration on Open Access in Greece expresses its concerns about the inadequacy of the current scientific publication model and explicitly states the direct initiatives that it undertakes. The Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs, through Minister Kostas Gavroglou, supports the "Declaration on Open Access in Greece". The Minister's assent to the text of the Declaration was expressed after a meeting with the Chairperson of HEAL-Link, Professor Theodora Ioannidou, on the 31st of May 2018, at the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs.

Single sign-on model access to HEAL-Link and libraries's publishers/providers/platforms

15 June 2018

HEAL-Link, in collaboration with GRNET, has developed a new infrastructure for SAML IdP/SP proxy based federated access. The infrastructure was developed in order to simplify HEAL-Link's participation to single sign-on processes to publishers/providers/platforms concerning thus HEAL-Link as long as individual libraries, by adopting a simpler federated access model.

The new infrastructure will be progressively interconnected with publishers/providers /platforms and will operate alongside the existing federated access mechanism.

The services where the new infrastructure has already been integrated:

      
  • IEEE (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org)
  • You will be informed each time the list is updated.

    Instructions for use on the IEEE platform (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org):

        
    • Select "Institutional Sign In"   
    • In the pop-up window select at the bottom right: "Shibboleth"
    •   
    • Select "HEAL-Link" either alphabetically or through the search box
    •   
    • Select the institution and complete the login process

HEAL-Link unified search engine

23 March 2018

We are pleased to announce that the integration of HEAL-Link subscriptions to HEAL-Link's unified search engine has been completed. Now it hosts e-journals' archives, MARC Records of e-books as well as all current e-journals subscriptions. We also would like to emphasize that the update of the embedded content will be continuous and frequent, at least once a month.

https://search.heal-link.gr/

The search is performed at article level to e-journals and at record level to e-books. At the same time, it is possible to limit the results through multiple metadata filters.

We remind you that access is allowed through the registered IP addresses of each institution as well as through the user accounts (shibboleth) and that the terms of the contracts apply for the use of the content.

We would like to inform you that a free trial access period to the platform OECD iLibrary has been activated for all HEAL-Link members. Access is allowed through IP address recognition like the rest of HEAL-Link resources. In summary, the free trial access period concerns the following resources:

  • OECD iLibrary
    Online library of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) featuring its books, papers and statistics and is the gateway to OECD’s analysis and data. OECD iLibrary also contains content published by the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), the OECD Development Centre, PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment), and the International Transport Forum (ITF)
  • UN iLibrary
    The first comprehensive global search, discovery, and viewing source for digital content created by the United Nations. It provides librarians, information specialists, scholars, students, policy makers and the general public with a single digital destination for seamlessly accessing publications, journals, data, and series published by the United Nations Secretariat, and its funds and programs
  • Commonwealth iLibrary
    Contains the Commonwealth's publications, around 30 new titles each year
  • Nordic Council
    Contains Nordic publications that play a key role as the outcome of the many projects and activities fostered and financed by the Nordic co-operation and also these publications, being primarily research-based analyses, form the basis for political decisions in the Nordic co-operation
  • ITU
    Contains the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) publications, around 40 new titles each year
In the near future, access to The WTO (World Trade Organization) iLibrary will be incorporated into the above and you will be informed by a new announcement.
The free trial access period will be active until 30 June 2018, with the possibility of extending it until the end of 2018 (after the evaluation of its usage).
