A major upgrade to the Library’s EBSCOhost database subscriptions recently went into effect. We are moving from the Elite versions of Academic Search and Business Source to the Premier versions, which will provide many more full-text articles. We have also acquired some new EBSCOhost databases:
- Health Source—Consumer Edition
- Professional Development Collection
- Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection
- Religion and Philosophy Collection
- Vocational and Career Collection
To find them, click on the main EBSCOhost link on the Databases page of the Library website, and then select individual databases from the “Choose Databases” page.
The individual new databases will appear on our website soon. Academic Search Elite and Business Source Elite will remain available until January 15, at which time we’ll switch over completely to Academic Search Premier and Business Source Premier.
The Library has acquired access to a collection of nearly 600 electronic books from the Harold Bloom editions of literary criticism. Individual titles will be available through the online catalog, or you can search the entire collection by looking for Infobase eBooks on the Databases page of the website.
