IEEE Xplore Database Upgrade on Saturday, July 29th

On Saturday, July 29th, IEEE will release a major system upgrade to the database IEEE Xplore digital library.

As a result of this upgrade, users may experience up to 8 hours of
downtime beginning at approximately 7:00 a.m. CST.

IEEE Xplore 2.1.4 will be OpenURL compatible, which provides a standardized syntax for organizing bibliographic metadata and identifiers in a URL and transferring data between information services. Links are enabled between unsubscribed content in IEEE Xplore to the library's link resolver, leading users to appropriate resources within our institution, the UT-Dallas McDermott Library. With this enhancement, the McDermott Library can work with our link resolver software to fully enable access to our electronic journal holdings. OpenURL will be provided in these areas:

  • Search results
  • References
  • Brief abstracts
  • IEEE Book abstracts
