Zetoc service to be retired

JISC and the British Library have taken the decision to retire the Zetoc service from 1 August 2022.

This decision has been taken due to a progressive decline in its use and a diminishing number of users. In addition, the emergence of alternative services and changes to the way information is typically searched, means there is no longer a viable strategic case for Jisc to continue delivering this service.

Any users who are currently signed up to Zetoc should have already been contacted by Jisc and informed of their plans. From 1 August 2022 alerts from Zetoc will automatically stop and users will no longer be able to carry out searches.

If you have any particular queries, please contact help@jisc.ac.uk.

As an alternative to Zetoc, you may wish to use the online resource BrowZine. You can find out more information on this resource as well as help guides on our website.
