New electronic resources!

Happy 2009! With the turning of the year comes electronic resource activations! We have a bunch of new items in the Electronic Resources Gateway, with more to come soon.

New databases

The Library had been trialing these three databases in late 2008, but we now officially have subscriptions to them.

University of Chicago Press Journals

We have gone Internet-only with our subscriptions to journals from the University of Chicago Press. Please note that our subscription type for these journals only allows one person to access the title at a time.

Karger Journals

We have also gone Internet-only with our Karger subscriptions, most of them beginning with 2009. Note: Karger only allows electronic access to full-text articles for years that you pay for an electronic subscription.
