Databases get a makeover

Spring is in the air: birds are singing, flowers are blooming, and to top it all off, Proquest, one of our largest database providers, has a new look!

Now with an improved interface, it's much easier to access to a broad range of authoritative resources, content and services through the library web pages. Databases which have adopted the new interface are:-

  • ABI/Inform: full-text business database

  • ANTE: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering

  • British Periodicals: full-text access to hundreds of periodicals from late 17th Century to early 20th Century

  • PILOTS: index to literature on post traumatic stress disorder

You can find more with a single search across multiple resources. With just a few clicks, you can get to relevant content more quickly, work with results more effectively, and share results with friends and colleagues via social networking.

Go to the library web pages, choose any of the above databases and try it out! If you have any questions, please ask a librarian.
