Drexel University Libraries is pleased to announce changes in electronic resource offerings in psychology. Effective July 1, 2013 access to the core resources in psychology published by the American Psychological Association, PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, PsycBOOKS and PsycCRITIQUES will move from the existing Ovid platform to EBSCOhost. In addition, the Libraries will be adding APA’s newest resource, PsycTESTS to our electronic collections.
Exciting News from the Library's Health Sciences blog!
The Libraries have subscribed to Elsevier’s ClinicalKey online service, which replaces the electronic content that was formerly offered through MDConsult. It offers a more robust (yet simple) searching interface and access to thousands more books and journals, as well as other sources, as noted in the following list.
Drexel University Libraries Expands Access to Harvard Business Review Articles to Include Course Use
Drexel faculty may now assign Harvard Business Review [HBR] articles in courses, including placing articles on reserve, posting them to course management shells, and adding them in course packs, as the result of a new licensing agreement acquired by the Libraries.
The Libraries’ special license will extend course use to HBR articles on behalf of Drexel faculty university-wide. Previously, the Libraries provided researchers access to the HBR, but the publisher restricted use of articles for courses.
Welcome back for summer quarter! We’ve made some changes over break – and no doubt some of you have already noticed that the Reference Desk at W.W. Hagerty Library is gone! We have noted for some time that library users were often confused about where to go for help in our buildings. Offering a single point of service, at the Circulation Desk, will quickly direct library users to the services and expertise they need. Staff at the Circulation Desk will answer questions or will refer you to the librarian or library office with the expertise needed to provide you the best answer.
The Libraries is excited to announce the addition of two new archives to the Libraries' collection:
- The Vogue Archive - A complete searchable archive of American Vogue, from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included, with rich indexing enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand names.
