Research Library Discontinues OPPIE
The Research Library is discontinuing the OPPIE search tool as of December 31, 2012.
The decision to discontinue OPPIE was made in August 2011. A major driver was to refocus staff energies on three areas:
- Managing local collections (RASSTI, LA Authors, LDRD Connexion, and EPRR).
- Supporting bibliometric requests from laboratory scientists/managers.
- Exploring access to other kinds of scientific & technical information - datasets, images, and video.
Training (video, one-on-one) is available for these resources.
Many commercial products provide access to the data currently found in OPPIE:
Primo (http://primo.lanl.gov), a new product recently released by the Research Library offers a different model of searching multiple scholarly resources. The Research Library provides access to commercial products like Primo, Web of Knowledge and other resources listed at the Find Articles/Databases page.
Researchers who have alerts in OPPIE will be notified separately.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with training requests, comments or concerns.
