Database Changes Effective July 1st

July 18, 2014 at 12:51 pm Leave a comment

Every year librarians evaluate our electronic resources to make sure that we are getting the best value for the millions that we spend. This includes the databases and  we have made some changes effective July 1.

Cancelled because of low usage:

  • CQ Weekly (cost per use last year was $37 per search)
  • International Index to Black periodicals (cost per use last year was $21 per search)

Cancelled and replaced:

  • We cancelled Literature Resource Center (LRC) and replaced it with Literature Online (LION). While LRC did not have low use, English Department faculty members have been asking for LION for a number of years.

To see what databases we have in a particular subject area, check out the Subject Gateways and please feel free to contact Mary Gilbert (Assistant University Librarian for Content Management) with any questions you may have.
