Three new databases make research easy!

The library staff is pleased to announce the addition of three new electronic resources to the collection!

APA PsycNET is a combination of databases, including PsycArticles and PyscINFO, that contains citations, abstracts and full-text scholarly journal articles on psychology and behavioral science. Also included are book chapters, full-text books and APA's Encyclopedia of Psychology.

Gale Science Resource Center offers a variety of information on science topics in the form of scholarly journal, newspaper and reference articles, multimedia clips and images. This database is an excellent resource for any science course, and even provides sample experiments with instructions. This resource also would work well for any pick-your-own-topic assignment, such as those given in English 111 and Public Speaking.

ProQuest Dissertations and Theses provides access to citations and full-text dissertations and theses on a variety of topics. This new resource may be especially helpful to faculty looking for comprehensive research.

All of these resources can be accessed both on and off campus by students, faculty and staff.

We hope you will find these new databases helpful, and please keep in mind that we are always here to help if you have trouble. So give us a call; we'll be glad to walk your though it.
