1. New ITM Library Website

The ITM Library website has received a major make-over, with a fresh look and feel in a new 5 by 6 matrix structure, page-specific hotlinks and a webside-wide search box.

Currently bib.itg.be co-exists with lib.itg.be but soon - when all secondary pages are converted in style and the last few bugs elmininated - the new library website will replace the old one at the familiar URL lib.itg.be.

4. Complete ITM Library Books Catalog Integrated in our Discovery Service

The ITM Library Discovery Service now covers most of the published literature available to ITM, both in open access and subscribed to. Recently the complete ITM books catalog (over 28,000 titles) was integrated so that all our print and e-books can be found - either as part of our complete information universe, or separately, using the 'ITM Library Books' limiter. As with the new library website, please grant the Discovery Service a few more weeks for further finetuning, especially for online availability indicators such as LinkSource.

5. New Look for TropMed Central Antwerp

Built on the latest DSpace 3 platform, TropMed Central Antwerp, ITM's institutional open access repository, now lists over 6,500 publications authored by ITM researchers, from the year 1990 until now.

Due to publishers' legal copyright restrictions, so far only about 30% of these contain a publicly available full text PDF. We are continually improving this full-text ratio by collecting authors' preprints, which are generally not subject to such open access distribution limitations.

How to enhance your international visibility: ITM authors are warmly invited to send us both their final MS-Word versions and the published PDF of your new publications to dspace@itg.be. We shall then put the appropriate version in TropMed Central Antwerp for you. Please also supply any remaining missing preprints of older publications.

Please also keep in mind that within the ITM site the large majority of post year 2000 full text PDF's is available from within the ITM Staff Publications database. This database is also linked with the ITM website for the automatic creation of publication lists on your personal webpages.
