    • Chemistry & Fashion: Two New Resources

      January 28, 2011

      They're finally here! Drexel University Libraries now has a subscription to two important resources: Berg Fashion Library and Reaxys Berg Fashion Library includes online access to the Berg Encyclopedia of World Dress and Fashion. It also includes e-books, reference works, images, and so much more. The Fashion Library is a convenient place to start your research on the history of dress or the fashion industry. Note the ability to explore fashion by time or place using the interactive timeline and map on the homepage. If nothing else, you should check out the stunning images! Reaxys is a web based database that combines Beilstein and Gmellen, two resources covering the chemical literature back to the 19th century. It will help you discover chemical data information. Try this: click on 'Generate structure from name,' enter the scientific or popular name for a compound name (try 'aspirin') and it will generate the structure automatically. Never draw a compound structure again!

    • Q: What's New? A: ProQuest

      January 10, 2011

      ProQuest Logo If you love ProQuest Research Library as much as we do, you are probably familiar with the trusty yellow and white interface we've all come to know and love. Well, get ready for a big change, because Proquest just got a big facelift. But it's not just it's looks that have changed. Now you can search across more databases at once, and you can more easily narrow your search with the tools at the right of your search results. Try some of the cool features in advanced search, like the Figures & Tables search when you need a graph. Get started by finding ProQuest Research Library under the Quick Links on the library homepage, or wherever you're used to finding it. If you're familiar with Summon, you'll be good to go on the new ProQuest platform, but if need the rundown, give us a shout and we'll help you get started. It only takes a couple of minutes to get the hang of it--and you'll be glad you did.
