NEW AND NOTABLE If you use (and/or teach use of) Google Scholar, you might have noticed that direct links to "Web of Science" are now included in search results executed from NU campus IP addresses. It seems that links only appear below items that are indexed in web of science and have been cited at least once.
Thomson Reuters and Google have a new partnership, mentioned in this blog post: http://researchnews.wordpress.com/2013/11/08/new-partnership-between-web-of-science-google-scholar/
The WOS links are circled in red. I imagine that users will like this change and that use of WOS on campus will increase, but time will tell.
