Request an online resource

Did you know the Library maintains an ongoing ‘wish list’ for e-resources?  By faculty request, new online resources this semester include Encyclopedia of Race and Racism and Vital Statistics on American Politics 2015-2016.  During the academic year, we review and set priorities, depending on available funds.   Faculty may inquire with their library liaison or directly to Katie Bauer or Jennifer van Sickle. Review the wishlist here.

Outage for off-campus access to databases

On Wednesday June 22nd at 8:00am, off-campus access to databases will be down due to system maintenance of the EZproxy server. We anticipate this will last no more than one hour.

New Databases to Try

We’ve arranged trials of two databases. We’d like to hear your opinion:

  • Policy Map, an online data and mapping application that gives access to over 15,000 indicators related to housing, crime, mortgages, health, jobs, demographics and education. Through PolicyMap, you can access all data in maps, tables, charts, and reports. Data may be viewed by block group, census tract, zip code, county, city, state, MSA, school districts and political boundaries.  Many of the public files are available for download, proprietary data sets are not. You may also upload your own address level data and share your data and interactive maps with others.
  • Press Reader. An online platform for a variety of newspapers and magazines. Press Reader is mainly being tested as a way to provide timely access to international news. You may find the interface works better if you download the free app and access content on a device such as the iPhone, iPad or Android device.

Please try these databases and let us know if you think the library should consider a purchase by sending email to kbauer@trincoll.edu.

These changes are in effect from Sunday, December 13 until December 22, 2015.

Good luck on your finals and papers!
