Wiley Online Library Is Migrating to New Platform

TRANSFUSION, along with the rest of Wiley’s extensive library of online resources, is scheduled for an upgrade to the Literatum platform in February. That amounts to more than 1600 journals and more than 20,000 online books! What does this mean to TRANSFUSION readers? From a user’s perspective, the change should be seamless. AABB members will still be able to gain access through the unified login on the AABB website. Hyperlinks to the journal from documents and websites will automatically be redirected to the desired location on Literatum. The address will continue to work. Improvements will include: 1) easier searching, 2) access to a wider range of relevant, ranked, and recommended content, 3) optimized display for all devices (laptop, tablet, mobile browsers), 3) ability to share TRANSFUSION content with a broader audience, 4) and more. The new platform is hosted on Atypon, the leading scientific and scholarly digital platform provider
