New Databases Available

Sims Library is offering several new databases this semester.
One is Films on Demand: Digital Educational Video. This collection includes over 20,000 streaming videos covering 29 academic subject areas from a number of producers, including the BBC, PBS, TED, A&E, MacNeil Lehrer, National Geographic, and other production companies.

Another is Fashion Studies Online: The Videofashion Library.  It includes over 904 online videos on the history of fashion, textiles, marketing and merchandising, clothing, and costume.

Faculty may use the videos for streaming in Moodle or other course management systems, and for classroom viewing. The videos may be viewed by multiple users at a time, on computers, iPads, iPhones, and other mobile devices.

Journal Citation Reports allows users to evaluate and compare journals using citation data drawn from approximately 12,000 scholarly and technical journals and conference proceedings from more than 3,300 publishers in over 60 countries.  Journal Citation Reports is the only source of citation data on journals, and includes virtually all specialties in the areas of science, technology, and social sciences.

Essential Science Indicators is a unique compilation of performance statistics and trends extrapolated from counts of articles published in scholarly journals and the citations to those articles.

The Emerald Health & Social Care eJournal Collection provides indexing and abstracts and some full text for 46 journals covering topics such as intellectual/learning disabilities, mental health, criminology and forensic practice, working with vulnerable groups, and management of services.

Coverage of the New York Times has also been expanded and is now available in full text back to 1851.

All of these resources are available to Southeastern students and faculty, both on and off-campus via the Library’s home page.

A program will be held in conjunction with the Center for Faculty Excellence on September 23 to demonstrate Films on Demand, Journal Citation Reports, Essential Science Indicators, and older databases Web of Science and the Foundation Directory.  Additional details about that program will be announced later.
