New databases and e-books for 2012-2013

Here’s an update on the changes we’ve made to our databases and e-books. We have some very exciting additions that we think you will find really streamline your research.

We are very pleased to bring you Proquest Congressional, which provides full text online access to congressional publications back to 1789, as well as more advanced search capabilities. All students, faculty, and staff on campus will benefit from the ability to quickly get the text of these. We will have more in-depth features on how to use these starting this fall.

We have added electronic books in a variety of topics.  You can search these through SpringerLink or through the library catalog. Like a journal article, you can search within the text and download the full text of the chapter you need for your research. So far we have added:
659 titles in Humanities, Social Science & Law
205 titles in Business and Economics
48 titles in Behavior Sciences
2222 titles in Medicine

We have also added over 1500 journals on a variety of topics.

We have added Educational Curriculum, Educational Psychology, Educational Technology, and Library Science. Cabell’s directories give you all the information you need for submitting articles for publication. This is aimed at faculty and graduate students in business, education, and library science.

Core collections are lists of books that belong in various types of libraries, and are aimed at graduate students in library science and education.
