It is not necessary to login with your NUSNET ID and password before searching to see results in FindMore@NUSL. You will be prompted to login to access full-text when necessary.

However doing a login before searching has a few benefits

1. You will see more articles, conference proceedings and other items from various restricted sources including

  • Web of Science
  • Scopus (as of Jan 2014)
  • Various Proquest  - Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) Databases eg PILOTS, Sociological Abstracts, Worldwide Political Science Abstracts, MLA International Bibliography etc
  • Artstor (images) 

This will enable more articles to be found in FindMore@NUSL. For example "The bonsai under the banyan tree: democracy and democratisation in Singapore" can only be found in FindMore@NUSL, after login because it is in Web of Science only and not in the normal FindMore@NUSL results. 

Not all such items will be available in full-text, however those that we have in full-text will be indicated.

2. You will also be able to see Time cited data if available (from Web of Science and Scopus) for articles.

Times cited data from Scopus will be available from June 2014.
