Trial: The Early Republic

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Library currently has a free trial to The Early Republic from Johns Hopkins University Press. The trial runs through Aug. 4.

Since 1972, 17 volumes of primary material documenting the actions, debates, and thoughts of the First Federal Congress and its members have been collected by the First Federal Congress Project (FFCP) and published by the Johns Hopkins University Press. These volumes of the Documentary History of the First Federal Congress are used by Congress, historians, political scientists, and jurists to understand the most important and productive Congress in United States history.

The Early Republic brings this rich legacy to the fingertips of a new generation of students and scholars. Comprising 17,000 annotated pages and 250 images, the innovative online reference features a cumulative index and robust search engine. The Early Republic will incorporate the full text of future volumes and will eventually incorporate digital editions of other publications relating to the colonial period and revolution.

Trial: Faculty of 1000

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Library has a free trial to Faculty of 1000. The trial ends July 2, 2011.

Faculty of 1000 (F1000) identifies and evaluates the most important articles in biology and medical research publications. Articles are selected by a peer-nominated global 'Faculty' of the world's leading scientists and clinicians who then rate them and explain their importance. From the numerical ratings awarded, we have created a unique system for quantifying the importance of individual articles and, from these article ratings, journals. Both articles and journals can then be ranked overall and, importantly, at the subject, or Faculty, level.
