Newer... Database Changes

Librarian Lynn Hoffmann shares the following database changes:

Biography Resource Center adds the Lives & Perspectives Collection. This optional new module supplements the Biography Resource Center with nearly 160,000 biographies drawn from a range of highly respected academic reference titles such as American Men & Women of Science, Governments of the World, Encyclopedia of African-American Culture & History and the Dartmouth Medal-winning Encyclopaedia Judaica.

Environment Complete will replace Environment Index, providing more full-text coverage.

Environment Complete contains all of the content available in Environment Index, as well as full text for 470 journals, including many of the most used journals in the discipline, such as Environment (back to 1975), Ecologist, Conservation Biology, and more. Environment Complete also provides full text for 80 monographs, such as Encyclopedia of World Environmental History (three volumes), Advances in Water Treatment & Environmental Management. Further, the database offers full text for the conference papers of the North American Association of Environmental Education.
