Library Databases webpages

How we access the databases and the ways in which we can discover appropriate databases has changed. We are now using the LibGuides platform. Click through and check it out yourself. Leave a comment with your impressions. See below for more details.

A message from Randy...

The library website database landing page has changed, and the A to Z list of databases has been moved to LibGuides.

Initial navigation remains the same — you can click on the "Databases" button on the library home page, or you can use the top menu: Search > Databases.

The databases landing page is still a list of multidisciplinary databases, but the category links (such as "Hot Topics & Issues") now take you to LibGuides-generated lists.

The "A to Z List of Databases" was formerly a simple list of links, but now has gained a significant level of functionality via the LibGuides platform: you can filter the database list by subject as well as by database type.

I've done my best to categorize databases into appropriate subjects and database types, but no doubt some refinements will be necessary... The subject taxonomy that I've used is linked below, FYI.

The last remaining section of the website database pages to take care of is the "Databases by Subject" page. Many of these have already been moved to the LibGuides platform; we plan to have the rest converted by the beginning of Spring semester.

Let me know if you have questions.
