Users who have become familiar with the CSA interface for the following databases will expect some changes over the next month or so:
- ASSIA (Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts)
- Physical Education Index
- Social Services Abstracts
- Sociological Abstracts
- Worldwide Political Science Abstracts
CSA purchased the ProQuest family of databases in 2007 and is finally moving all their interfaces to the new ProQuest platform so all databases have similar layouts, help menus and navigation. At the end of March 2011, CSA will be discontinuing the search interface through its CSA Illumina website and only using the ProQuest platform. We want to inform you of the upcoming changes with enough time to give all users experience testing the search capabilities of this new platform. All “old interface” links to the listed databases will be available through the end of March. If students or faculty encounter problems with the new search interface, please inform library staff immediately and we will troubleshoot any problems.
For more information about the new search interface, go to the ProQuest website.
Or, please contact Kate Pitcher, Head of Technical Services and Collection Development at [email protected] or by phone at 245-5064 for further details.
On Monday, April 14, representatives from Elsevier Publishers will be in the Milne Library Lobby from 10:00am to 12:00pm demonstrating the citation database Scopus, a recent addition to Milne Library’s research resources. Scopus covers a wide variety of articles related to the physical sciences, biomedical sciences, and social sciences.
In addition to keyword searching, this database allows users to track down the citation history of a known publication.
For example, if you found a really great article for the term paper you have due next week, you can use Scopus to locate other articles that cited your really great article.
Scopus also provides the ability to easily narrow your search by subject area, publication year, and keyword.
Stop by the library on Monday morning (April 14) to learn more about this powerful new resource.
