New look to the Fame database

The Fame database of company information has a new look. From 8 October 2018 links from the Information Services Databases A-Z and online guides to Fame will go direct to the new look Fame (as screenshot below).

To enable personalisation features, a new sign-in method (Shibboleth or institutional sign-in) will also be in place from that date.  As before, login will be with your Heriot-Watt University username and password.  The only differences will be you’ll be asked to login from both on-campus and off-campus via a slightly different login screen (shown below).

Shibboleth sign-in

Our current sign-in method doesn’t facilitate saving searches in Fame. However, if you happen to have any saved searches in the current version , the advice is to keep a note of these to rebuild them manually in the new version.  These won’t be transferred over automatically.

Video tutorials and guides on the new version of Fame are available in the ‘Help’ area once logged in.
