New Resources in the Library

We have made several new acquisitions to support faculty and students for the new school year:

SPORTDiscus with Full Text is the definitive research tool for all areas of sports and sports medicine literature. The database provides access to full text for 550 journals in the areas of sports and sports medicine journals. This authoritative file contains full text for many of the most used journals in the database with no embargo and full-text coverage dating back to 1985. The library also upgraded its subscription to CINAHL Complete providing full text from almost 700 additional journals. CINAHL Complete includes indexing from an additional two thousand journals providing two million more records. The subscription includes continuing education modules, evidence-based care sheets, quick lessons providing overviews of disease and conditions, and information on research instruments.

The DSM Library provides electronic full text to the DSM-5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition) as well as several other supporting works including: DSM-5® Handbook of Differential Diagnosis, DSM-5® Clinical Cases, and the Spanish Edition of the Desk Reference to the Diagnostic Criteria From DSM-5®. This critical reference work is now available online full text and available 24×7 for use by both on ground and online students.

American Antiquarian Society (AAS): The AAS Historical Periodicals Collection, Series 1 – 5 – American Antiquarian Society is seen as the premier library documenting the life of America’s people from the Colonial Era through the Civil War and Reconstruction.
