Readers’ Guide Retrospective: 1890-1982

From April 4 through June 3, we have trial access to Readers’ Guide Retrospective: 1890-1982. This database includes citations for more than three million articles from more than 550 leading magazines dating as far back as 1890.

Many of the old popular magazines on our Bound Periodicals shelves, including many that are valuable for image research, are indexed in no other resource here than the Readers' Guide, which we do have in print in the Reference area of the library.

This digital version offers all the advantages that come from searching in an online database--for instance, search within many year simultaneously, search by keyword rather than only by specific controlled subject headings, and search from anywhere with a web connection.

The trial will be active until June 3rd, so please give it a try, and let us know what you think.

 

Communication Source

From April 2 through May 31st, we have trial access to the EBSCO database Communication Source, the most comprehensive research database in the field of communications.

This resource results from a merger of EBSCO’s Communication and Mass Media Complete with SAGE's Communications Abstracts. It indexes and abstracts over 1000 core journals, nearly 400 more than in Communication and Mass Media Complete, and its active full text for more than 600 journals includes 150 full-text titles not available in CMMC.

It also has a subject-specific, browsable thesaurus featuring 4,528 preferred and 8,528 non-preferred terms and coverage dating back to 1915.

This trial will be active until May 31st, so please give it a try, and let us know what you think.

 

Credo Reference

From April 11th through May 10th, we have a trial subscription to Credo Reference, which offers convenient access to millions of entries from hundreds of titles, providing credible, reliable information for subjects including medicine & health, history, language & linguistics, literature, psychology, sociology, religion, economics, art, and much more.

With convenient searching and browsing, topic pages, images, diverse sources, linked references, and much more, Credo Reference promises to be as user-friendly as it is useful.

This trial lasts until just May 10, so please give it a try and let us know what you think.

 

International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance with Full Text

From April 4 through June 3, we have trial access to International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance with Full Text, "the definitive research tool for the study of theatre and the performing arts."

Initiated by the American Society for Theatre Research and produced since 1984 by the Theatre Research Data Center (TRDC) at Brooklyn College, this resource offers "a fully indexed, cross-referenced and annotated databank of over 60,000 journal articles, books, book chapters and dissertation abstracts on all aspects of theatre and performance in 126 countries."

The trial will be active until June 3rd, so please give it a try, and let us know what you think.

 

 

American Antiquarian Society Collections

From April 2 through May 31st, we have trial access to two of EBSCO's subject-specific collections from the American Antiquarian Society:

The former presents full text "literature of the British Empire, specifically focusing on colonial North America. Many of the periodicals were printed in Europe, Canada or appear as publications reissued in America. A few titles come from Asia." The collection "provide scholars with a unique insight into the colonies' complex relationship with European home countries as they developed their own identity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries."

The latter "draws from the publications that created the literary and cultural traditions of the Young America and Manifest Destiny movements" and "provides scholars with a unique snapshot into the ideas that fueled America's westward expansion."

This trial will be active until May 31st, so please give it a try, and let us know what you think.
