Student Technology Fee adds more content to ScienceDirect

Thanks to the Student Technology Fee Committee, we are pleased to announce that we now have access to a vast number of new electronic journals, via Elsevier’s ScienceDirect database in GALILEO.  The STF had previously funded the Environmental Sciences Collection (97 journals), and the committee has now added the Health Sciences (499 journals), Mathematics (89 journals), and Psychology (105 journals) Collections.  Access has just now been activated for these journals.

Keep an eye on this page for upcoming announcements about the other new databases that the Student Technology Fee will be funding in the near future:  ProQuest Public Health and Wilson OmniFile Full Text Mega Edition!  We’ll let you know as soon as they’re available.

Try out ScienceDirect here, and look for the green icon for the full-text articles in your search results.  You will find some titles in other subjects as well, since this includes all of the Elsevier-published journals we’ve been subscribing to.

As always Soon, you can also access these full-text journals with our Electronic Journals A-Z list, with the purple “Find It” button in other databases (including Google Scholar when on campus), with our library catalog (GIL Classic or the new GIL-Find interface), or with GALILEO.

These significant investments in library resources are most appreciated.  They are annual costs which can not be supported with the library budget at the current level, but were among the top priorities in Henderson Library’s wish list for electronic resources.  Please let us know what you think, and if you know a member of the Student Tech Fee Committee, please thank them for making sure that student fees help to provide vital information for student projects.
