Now playing at your campus library!

By    Jan Schnall   

We have something new for just about everyone. Several new and exciting database resources have been recently added.

The Proquest full-text Nursing Journal Collection will be welcomed by faculty and students. Complete text and images from 550 nursing journals such as Nursing, Nursing Management, Nursing Forum, RN and Journal of Nursing Education will be at your fingertips whether on campus or at home.

Announcing even more JSTOR collections!! In addition to JSTOR Arts & Sciences I & II, we now offer the General Science as well as the Ecology & Botany collections. Just for a bit of background information, JSTOR began as a pilot project at the University of Michigan in 1995 to ease the increasing problems faced by libraries struggling to provide space for the long runs of scholarly journals. JSTOR converts back issues of paper journals into electronic formats which allow savings in space while also improving access to the journal content. With JSTOR, journals are never “out.” The search and retrieval process is powerful and, as a result, JSTOR has become a greatly valued research tool.

Looking for American or British historical biographical information? The classic publications Oxford Dictionary of National Biography and American National Biography are now online.

LearningExpress Library is a unique resource providing unlimited access to vocational tests such as law enforcement and real estate. Another major component of this service is the skill-building interactive courses in math, reading and writing. Also included are hundreds of online practice tests for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, TOEFL, and civil service positions.

Talk about testing…there’s more. We now offer an online version of Buros’ Mental Measurements Yearbook. This comprehensive guide to over 2,000 contemporary testing instruments enables users to make informed judgments and decisions about the complex world of testing. It is designed for an audience ranging from experienced professionals to novice test consumers.

All of these resources are available from Maag’s homepage. Select Research Databases and follow the links.
