New databases, thanks to the Student Technology Fee

The Student Technology Fee Committee is funding two new databases, which are being hosted by the Zach S. Henderson Library.  Both databases are now available via GALILEO.

The online version of Value Line Investment Survey has replaced the printed version.  Value Line presents reports on over 1,700 individual stocks (covering the company’s past performance, current status, and outlook) and industry reviews. Each company report is revised quarterly, and includes an analyst’s recommendation, a beta, rankings, and financial statistics. Stocks may be screened using various rankings and performance criteria.  Try it out here.

All of Henderson Library’s journals from the Elsevier publisher have been migrated from print to online versions, which can now be accessed via ScienceDirect, which provides full text access to scholarly journals published by Elsevier and its subsidiaries.  In addition, our first ScienceDirect subject collection, Environmental Sciences, has been added to the same interface.  These 95 journals include often-needed titles such as Water Research, Science of the Total Environment, Bioresource Technology, Journal of Rural Studies, and NeuroToxicologyTry out ScienceDirect here, and look for the green icon for the full-text articles in your search results.

As always, you can also access these full-text journals with our Electronic Journals A-Z list, with the purple “Find It” button in other databases (including Google Scholar when on campus), with our library catalog (GIL Classic or the new GIL-Find interface), or with GALILEO.

These significant investments in library resources are most appreciated.  They are annual costs which can not be supported with the library budget at the current level, but were among the top priorities in Henderson Library’s wish list for electronic resources.  Please let us know what you think, and if you know a member of the Student Tech Fee Committee, please thank them for making sure that student fees help to provide vital information for student projects.
