Research Highlight: Web of Science!

WoS

The Library now subscribes to Web of Science, the best known database for cited reference searching.  It includes Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index, and Arts & Humanities Citation Index.  The library has just purchased the complete backfiles, so dates of coverage are from 1900-present (SCI, SSCI) and 1975-present (A&HCI).  In addition, our subscription to BIOSIS now runs on this platform.

To find out more about WoS, see this link or contact Jennifer van Sickle, Serials Librarian and Sciences Coordinator (Jennifer.vanSickle@trincoll.edu).

Library systems maintenance wrap-up 1/9

Note that yesterday’s Library systems maintenance is continuing for a few hours into this morning.  Our Library Catalog is back up (http://ctwweb.wesleyan.edu:7002/vwebv/searchBasic ) but our local screen customizations (including the screens to do a CTW search) will take a little more time to reload.  Everything should be back to normal later today.

Library Systems Maintenance Monday 1/7 and Tuesday 1/8

Please note that the Library Catalog will be unavailable Monday January 7th and most of Tuesday January 8th while we perform some scheduled systems maintenance.  We expect it to be fully functional again by Wednesday.

As an interim measure, you can still identify what titles we hold using our OCLC “WorldCat” Catalog link (http://trincoll.worldcat.org/advancedsearch ).  But you will need to see a staff member to identify our local call numbers.  Please stop by the Library Services Desk for assistance.

Chicago Manual of Style Online

The library has a trial to the Chicago Manual of Style Online through the end of January 2013. You can access it under Reference Tools in the Digital Collections tab of our homepage.  http://library.trincoll.edu/databases/chicagostyle

The Chicago Manual of Style Online includes the content of the 16th and 15th editions of the print work, as well as extras such as the Chicago Style Q&A, Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide, and a Tools section featuring guidelines for manuscript preparation, a list of proofreaders’ marks, and more.

We welcome your feedback and invite you to try out this convenient online resource for yourself!
