EZproxy and smart links

EZproxy technology was launched on the Portal of electronic information resources. EZproxy provides another way of remote access to licensed resources, the use of which is limited to the Palacký University computer network.
The advantage of EZproxy is its simplicity, but it is necessary to connect to resources directly here on the portal using EZproxy links, which the portal generates for individual resources.

At the same time, smart links were set up on the portal, which will make access to resources even easier.
Based on whether the user wants to access the resource directly from the university network or elsewhere, the portal itself offers a suitable link, i.e. direct access address, Shibboleth or EZproxy link.
All you have to do is "Connect to the resource" on its page here on the portal or click on the source name, e.g. in the alphabetical list.

Users who want to choose the method of remote access themselves can use the appropriate links on the page of the selected source, see the instructions for EZproxy and Shibboleth.
In addition, it is possible to use a VPN connection in which your computer becomes part of the UPOL network.

A Unique Film Scripts Online Screen Scripts Database!

The Full Scripts Database Movie Scripts Online contains scenarios of about 1500 American films, such as Ben Hur, JFK, Casablanca, Bonnie and Clyde, Platoon. Some of them have never been printed. This highly structured archive offers a bibliographic and biographical database of directors and writers along with the entire text of the films themselves.
We watch, discuss and analyze movies, but we rarely read scenarios. While some of the familiar movie scripts appeared in printed form, most of them have never been published in any format. Researchers have difficulty finding original scripts, acting and gaining authority from holders who are often reluctant to borrow rare and unique documents.

Documents allow you to "watch" the film with the author's perspective, which sometimes differs from the final version. Each scenario is supplemented by bibliographic and biographical (including character and character list) data, a breakdown of individual scenes, and basic information about both the screenwriter and the director. The database also stores individual scenarios.

Take advantage of the FREE trial access to this unique database, until December 1, 2018!

Plum Metrics provide unique information about usage (display, download, WorldCat), bookmarking (e.g. Mendeley), mention (Wikipedia etc.), social media (Facebook, Twitter) and citation (Scopus, PubMed, SSRN etc.). Users and authors can follow in real time impact and reflection of all types of publications (articles, books, collection, video, posters etc.). PlumX Metrics help users to have a deeper and superior research with modern evaluation of results.

Additional information can be find here. Search for a specific keyword and look for an icon similar to this one. Simiralry metrics can be find also in databases SpringerLink, Wiley Online, Library, Cambridge Journals Online or Scopus 

(but they are named differently e.g. Altmetric or CiteScore Metrics).
