News About Electronic Resources

The Library has added a few databases to its already extensive list. You can now find: Westlaw Campus Research and New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics. The library has also purchased the Dictionary of Old English A-G and the Dictionary of Old English Corpus. These last two can only be found in the CUNY+ catalog.

Some of the old familiar databases have changed. The Ebsco databases now have a different interface. Searching concepts are essentially the same, but the new interface makes narrowing down results more user friendly and efficient. This new version also allows for visual searching. Philosopher’s Index is now available on the Ebsco platform and Mental Measurements Yearbook and Project Muse have also changed their interfaces. In addition, the Web of Science now offers citation mapping—a visual representation of a citation search.

Nancy Egan is now the Electronic Resources Librarian (and still the Media Librarian) so if you have any questions or would like training on any of our databases, wish to request a trial of a database, or would like to make comments on a current trial, please contact her at
