Database Updates: New, Cancelled and Re-Named Resources for Fall 2016
Zach S. Henderson Library supports Georgia Southern University by providing access to information, collections, and services designed to meet the scholarly needs of the University and the general public. As part of this effort, and in coordination with GALILEO, the library continually reviews our database subscriptions to ensure that we provide the best possible mix of resources and research tools.
The library announces the following new, cancelled, and re-named resources for Fall 2016:
- New ProQuest Databases
The library has added 45 new GALILEO-supported ProQuest databases to our collection. For a complete list of newly added ProQuest databases see the “New / Trial Databases” column on the right-hand side of the LibGuides A-Z database list.
- Oxford English Dictionary
Effective July 1st, GALILEO discontinued its subscription to the Oxford English Dictionary. In order to provide ongoing access, the Henderson Library has assumed the cost of this resource.
As part of the library’s continual review, the following databases have been identified for cancellation effective July 25, 2016:
- EBSCO PsycCRITIQUES
- EBSCO PsycEXTRA
The following database has been identified for cancellation effective December 1, 2016:
- ProQuest Digital Microfilm
For users of PsycCRITIQUES and PsycEXTRA, these resources have been cancelled in order to acquire PsycTESTS. Produced by the APA and hosted by EBSCO, the PsycTESTS database is an extensive collection of psychological measures, scales, surveys, and other instruments essential to the research needs of professionals, students, and educators across the behavioral and social sciences. PsycTESTS will be available soon.
For users of ProQuest Digital Microfilm, access to current issues of The Atlanta Constitution, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post is available through other databases. For more information, please refer to the library’s Newspapers @ Georgia Southern research guide.
Database Title Changes:
The following databases have been re-named in order to maintain consistency with GALILEO’s naming conventions.
- “ProQuest News and Newspapers” is now called News & Newspapers (ProQuest)
- “ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health Source” is now called Nursing & Allied Health Database (ProQuest)
- “ProQuest Public Health” is now called Public Health Database (ProQuest)
These title changes are reflected throughout the library website and research guides.
