Trial Subscription Databases, Possible Future Acquisitions

CUNY Libraries are considering further resource sharing investments in several new databases.  Please Click Here and take a few minutes to try out these databases that are being offered as trials.  

Three databases recently added that we think will be of interest to CSI researchers are highlighted below:

EBSCOhost Integrated Search
Federated search portal that allows you to search a variety of databases and electronic resources simultaneously. Simply select a subject to search all databases in that subject area. EBSCOhost Integrated Search makes it easier to access many electronic resources from a single search interface. Popular databases include, but are not limited to, Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, LexisNexis, CQ Researcher, Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center, and WorldCat.
