New Library Online Resources and Database Changes

The Ort Library is pleased to announce access to the following new online resources for students, faculty and staff:

·       Education Research Complete:  This database covers education topics from early childhood to higher education and all educational specialties, such as multilingual education, health education, testing, curriculum, and leadership.  It provides indexing and abstracts for more than 2,100 journals, as well as full text for more than 1,200 journals, and includes full text for nearly 500 books and monographs.  Education Research Complete replaces the Education Journals database that has been offered by the library.  

·       ARTstor Digital Library:  ARTstor is a resource that provides over 1.5 million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and sciences with an accessible suite of software tools for teaching and research.  Community-built collections comprise contributions from international museums, photographers, libraries, scholars, photo archives and artists and artists' estates.

Citations to the content for both Education Research Complete and ARTstor are incorporated into the Library’s OneSearch service.  More information about OneSearch, including user guides and a basic video tutorial, is available on the library’s website.

The databases may also be accessed directly via the library’s website or Research Port.

Subscriptions to the databases Education Journals and Social Science Abstracts will end in early July 2013 and these resources will be removed from OneSearch and Research Port.  As described above, Education Research Complete will replace Education Journals.  Citations from Social Science Abstracts are duplicated in other Library databases and within the OneSearch service.

If you have any questions, please contact a reference librarian via phone (301-687-4424), online, or at the Reference Desk on Floor 2 of the Ort Library.  If you would like to schedule an instruction session for your class, please complete the Library Instruction Request Form.
