Library Database News

Find even more relevant and reliable magazine and journal articles than ever in new library databases (available from the library’s databases page effective July 1):

  • Academic Search Premier (EBSCO) – more than 4,700 full text journals, 3,700 of those peer-reviewed. Subjects range from biology, chemistry, engineering and physics to psychology, religion & theology, and everything in between. Replaces ProQuest’s Research Library with about twice the number of full text journals.
  • Literary Reference Center (EBSCO) – replaces Gale Literature Resource Center.
  • Business Source Premier (EBSCO) – full text for more than 2300 business journals.
  • LexisNexis Academic – over 6000 news, business, and legal resources
  • Opposing Viewpoints – balanced content on key issues of our time

Contact your librarian to discuss how your existing assignments can be supported by the new databases.

Continuing library databases:
We hope you will also enjoy continuing access to CQ Researcher & Global Reports, ScienceDirect, ARTstor, JSTOR I and II collections, Naxos Music Library, Oxford English Dictionary & Oxford Reference Online.

Finding relevant and reliable magazine and journal articles is much easier now that the library offers Academic Search Premier via EBSCOhost. Academic Search Premier is the preeminent academic collection of full text, peer-reviewed journals. More than 4,700 journals are available in full text, and more than 3,700 of these are peer-reviewed. This is roughly twice the number of full text journals available from ProQuest Research Library. Academic Search Premier provides unmatched full text coverage for a broad array of subject areas, including biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, psychology, and religion & theology.

An additional change to the database lineup is the replacement of the Gale Literature Resource Center with EBSCO’s Literary Reference Center The subscriptions to ProQuest and Gale will be discontinued on June 30, so if you reference either database in course materials, you’ll need to instead reference (EBSCO) Academic Search Premier or (EBSCO) Literary Reference Center. The new EBSCO databases can be accessed from the library’s databases page. Please feel free to contact your librarian to discuss how existing assignments can best be supported using the new databases.

In addition to Academic Search Premier, come July, the library will offer new access to Business Source Premier, LexisNexis Academic, and the Opposing Viewpoints database. If you have any questions, please contact your librarian. We’d be happy to discuss the new databases with you, and hope all Los Rios faculty, staff, and students also enjoy continuing access to CQ Researcher & Global Reports, ScienceDirect, ARTstor, JSTOR I and II collections, Naxos Music Library, Oxford English Dictionary & Oxford Reference Online.
