ScienceDirect outage this weekend

ScienceDirect, the online home of Elsevier journals, will be down for a scheduled upgrade this weekend. The outage is currently scheduled to start Friday, Aug. 1, at 11:30 p.m. HST and last till Saturday, Aug. 2, 7:30 p.m. HST. This of course is an estimate, so ScienceDirect may come back sooner, or if they run into problems, take longer to return.

The University of Hawaii at Manoa currently has access to approximately 2,000 journals via ScienceDirect.

Korean database trials

oops, I've been delinquent in updating. The two biggest recent additions are trials for two new Korean databases


E-Korean Studies

Both trials run through Oct. 31, 2008. You must use Internet Explorer to access these databases.
