Introducing OneSearch…

Providing a single, unified user interface for our research databases has been an ongoing challenge for the library. However, I’m pleased to promote our newest research service, OneSearch, which represents a positive step forward in fulfilling this user need. OneSearch lets you search across many of our research databases, including CONSULS, EBSCOHost, and Proquest, with a single search. More advanced features include logging in with your BlueNet ID and password to create custom database quicksets, store citations, and set user preferences. We hope you enjoy the new service and do let us know what you think! I prepared a short screencast demonstration of OneSearch that introduces the basic features. Watch it now!

E-Journals Galore!

To celebrate the New Year, the Burritt Library has subscribed to two outstanding e-journal packages: Oxford Journals Online and Sage Premier (2008 Package). The Oxford package includes 211 titles published by Oxford University Press, including 24 new titles for 2009. The backfiles extend to 1996 for most titles. A complete list of titles is available. Sage Premier provides full text access to over 400 e-journals published by Sage. The backfile coverage begins in 1999 and extends through the current issue.

We hope you enjoy the new offerings!
