Union list database
Welcome to the SHINE Union List of Periodicals. 4478 publications, current and non-current, are listed: the relevant periodical holdings of 89 libraries across Scotland concerned with the health sciences.
The Union List Database was made possible by an agreement for data sharing and database hosting signed between the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and SHINE in March 2004. The development of the database was undertaken by Gordon Dunsire, Depute Director of the Centre for Digital Library Research based at Strathclyde University.
Since the launch of the online database in 2005, SHINE members have been able to update their own library holdings and details direct to the website, and maintain a current and accurate record of their details. Amendments to your library's holdings and details can be made to the online Union List at any time during the year.
The Shine Union List Working Group works to maintain and improve the union list scheme, which facilitates journal article requests between participating libraries.
