Library Adds Electronic Resources

Olson Library has expanded access to scholarly electronic resources in order to meet the needs of the TLC laptop initiative. Over the past few months, the library has added approximately 1,500 electronic journals from four publishers and more than 1,000 full-text newspapers.


“In making collection decisions, electronic journals are always selected over their print equivalents if they cost the same or less,” said Kevin McDonough (Academic Information Services). “As a result, our e-journal holdings will increase as the number of print subscriptions declines.”

The new databases with the electronic journals and newspapers are: Project Muse, featuring 259 journals in the humanities, arts and social sciences; Oxford University Press, offering 165 journals in life sciences, medicine, physical sciences, humanities, social sciences and law; Westlaw Campus, with approximately 850 legal journals and law reviews, along with key state and federal legal sources; Wiley Interscience, featuring 320 journals in the sciences and social sciences; and Access World News, with 600 national newspapers and 500 international sources.
