The Content Keeps Coming

At least once a week I am notified of new content that has been added to our databases and electronic resources. Here are a few of the interesting items to come across my desk lately.

Three new scholarly journals have been added to Project MUSE; the Journal for the Study of Radicalism (Michigan State University Press), Feminist Teacher (University of Illinois Press) and American Literary Realism (University of Illinois Press). Project MUSE provides full-text, affordable and user-friendly online access to over 380 high quality humanities and social sciences journals from over 60 scholarly publishers.

Credo Reference has added The Edinburgh Encyclopedia of Continental Philosophy from Edinburgh University Press. This reference guide covers the most important authors and movements in Continental Philosophy. Each section focuses on a school of thought, bringing together articles by leading scholars which explore the key thinkers and texts. Arranged in chronological order, the volume begins with the founding texts of Classical Idealism and concludes with Post-structuralism.

Gale Cengage Learning, formerly known as Gale, continues to add peer reviewed journals and other scholarly content to their Academic OneFile database. The emphasis lately seems to be on health and medicine titles, with the addition of 35 journals published by Mary Anne Liebert; including AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses, Breastfeeding Medicine, Cloning and Stem Cells, and Human Gene Therapy, just to name a few.

Cengage also continues to add media content to the Academic OneFile database including 280 videos of live surgeries. For example to find live video of knee replacement surgeries, do a keyword search for (webcast or OR-live) and knee. You can view a total knee replacement procedure performed by a leading orthopedic surgeon at http://www.or-. Audio and video can be found under the Multimedia Tab in the OneFile databases.

We continue to test new products that may support the research needs of students and faculty. Our latest trial is to PEP Web – a digital archive of many of the major works of psychoanalysis. PEP, to be released in April, contains the complete full text of twenty-six premier psychoanalytic journals, complete versions of fifty-six classic psychoanalytic texts and all twenty-four volumes of the Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud. To give this database a try, go to our trials page. You will need to enter the username and password listed on the trials page to gain access.
