SpringerLink is moving to a new platform on November 26, 2012 and users will be redirected to the new SpringerLink upon migration. So whether you find a Springer article on Google, via the catalogue or even using an old Springerlink direct url, you will be redirected to the article on the new platform.

However, if you had an individual account set up on the old SpringerLink (My SpringerLink) you will need to go to SpringerLink and set up a new profile/account, because it will not be migrated to the new platform. Make sure to do this while within the institution’s IP range as you will then be automatically associated to the institution’s access rights.
