Documentation

In addition to the three Inspec Search Aids in XML, Inspec has produced a set of free quick reference guides and user notes tailored to each of the major search platforms. Free guides to other aspects of searching are also available.

LibGuides to using Inspec on a vendor platform

LibGuides for the Inspec database (http://iet.libguides.com) are now available on the Springshare platform. The LibGuides provide an overview of Inspec on various platforms in a quick reference manner plus conveniently link to Inspec informational videos. Librarians are encouraged to add the Inspec LibGuide, for their specific data delivery platform, into their existing LibGuide catalog for engineering, physics and computer science. It is also highly recommended that librarians include a link, in their LibGuides, for end-users to easily launch the organizations subscription to Inspec. For general information on LibGuides and the Springshare platform, please visit http://www.springshare.com/libguides/
