New Research Databases for you

Our contract with Gale which provided many databases ended June 30. Our new contract provides an expanded version of EBSCOhost databases which we think you will like even better.

Now there is exclusive, full text access to Consumer Reports from 1984 to the present with no delay in posting articles.

Besides the addition of many full-text magazines and journal articles, Newspaper Source Plus lets you search newspapers. Consumer Health Complete has news and reports on health topics. COIN Career Library has an easy-to-use resume builder and plenty of information for college bound students, including a College Finder and ACT/SAT quizzes. Research business topics using Business Source Complete.

If you were using Gale's General OneFile try MasterFilePremier, Opposing Viewpoints users can now try Points of View Reference Center and Literature Resource Center users can open Literary Reference Center.

Take a look at the complete list of new resources on our RESEARCH DATABASES page and try something out. As always, ask a librarian if you need any help. Come to the 2nd floor Reference Desk or call (408) 615-2900 or email Ask a Librarian.
