This week’s Featured Online Resource is the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). The DOAJ states on its website that its aim is to “increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals thereby promoting their increased usage and impact.” The journals included in the DOAJ must be peer-reviewed or have some other quality control. It also includes journals that report results of research and covers all subject areas. The DOAJ contains 7540 journals from 117 different countries around the world for a total of over 764,000 articles.
Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
The Ort Library would like everyone to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2 with our new display, Dr. Seuss: Children’s Books, Political Cartoons, and Advertising. The display showcases some of his most famous works as a children’s author. It also highlights Dr. Seuss’ work as a political cartoonist for PM newspaper from 1941 – 1943 and his work as a commercial artist for companies such as Ford, Macy’s, GE, and NBC.
The display is on the main floor of the library (3rd floor) and will run through the end of March.
