As noted in our recent update, 2016 is the 25th anniversary of arXiv, an important milestone. We are engaged in a series of vision-setting activities and, as part of this process, we are implementing a user survey to help us improve arXiv and clarify future directions for the service in a way that best serves the user community:

We need your help in reaching out to the user community. Please share the link far and wide and encourage scientists, researchers, and students to complete the survey. If you or your institution is active on social media please post the link freely. The survey will close on April 27. The responses we gather will help us plan the future for arXiv and continue to provide a service that is based on actual user needs and experiences.

INSPEC (Information in the Sciences, Physics, Electrical/Electronics and Computers), is moving to the Web of Science platform on April 20. INSPEC is the most comprehensive article index for these disciplines. It covers conference proceedings, workshops, seminars and books in addition to standard journal articles.
Special features are the ability to get review articles, limit topic by experimental or theoretical approach, applications, and do numerical range searching for properties of materials. One can search for articles on astronomical objects or chemical compounds. The INSPEC database will also be searchable via the current Ovid interface through June 30, 2009.
Access INSPEC here, or through the PSE Library database list. (Note: you must be on campus or logged in through the VPN for this to work. From this link, you will be able to choose whether you want to search through Ovid or Web of Science).
