New look Zetoc (Beta version) is now available.
Zetoc has had an overhaul and has been re-engineered with corrections, duplicates deleted and additional abstracts applied to records. Zetoc has also re-developed it's software to facilitate enhancement requests and functionality. Lastly, Zetoc has undergone a major re-branding and now has fresh new image to tie in with their redevelopment.
Zetoc is one of the world's most comprehensive research databases, giving you access to over 28,000 journals (of which over 21,500 are current), 45 million article citations and conference papers through the British Library's electronic table of contents.
Our old FIL website is currently being phased out and will be deleted by the end of the year. Anyone who visits our old website will now be automatically forwarded to this new website. Remember to update your bookmarked website.
