The University Libraries are pleased to announce a new database. Global Reference on the Environment, Energy & Natural Resources (GREENR) is now available.
GREENR focuses on the study of sustainability and the environment. Both interactive and current, GREENR allows users to navigate issue, organization and country portals. A one-stop site, this resource provides news, background information, video, unique commentaries, primary source documents and statistics in highly accessible, visually appealing research areas, covering relevant categories including energy systems, healthcare, food, climate change, population, economic development. One of the things that makes GREENR so user-friendly, is it does not look like the typical database product. This e-source also offers interactive maps and contextual multimedia, customizable journals and news, refereed case studies.
The American Anthropological Association (AAA) has launched a platform for its flagship database, AnthroSource.
AnthroSource is the premier online portal serving the research, teaching and practicing needs of anthropologists, offering access to more than 100 years of anthropological knowledge. AnthroSource provides current content from 32 anthropological publications, including journals, books, monographs, bulletins and newsletters.
You can access it here, from the database list for Anthropology or from the recently updated Anthropology Libguide
Here is the announcement from AAA:
University Libraries would like to thank the Provost’s Office for their generosity in acquiring the American Chemical Society (ACS) Legacy Archives.
The archive provides full-text searching and instant access to ACS journal content from their first volumes in 1879 to 1995. Adding the archive to our ongoing ACS Web Editions package, we now have continuous coverage from 1879 to the present.
Check here for details of the collection.
There will be events all over campus focusing on student research and the theme of “Share, Honor, Unite”. Check out the Petersheim website and the schedule of events

The university libraries are delighted to announce that we now have a subscription to SCOPUS. You can find it from the library home page Database A-Z & By Subject Lists
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. Delivering a comprehensive overview of the world’s research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
Training and support videos for SCOPUS can be found here
We are delighted to announce that we have just acquired IOPScience, a package of over 70 current journals from the Institute of Physics and its publishing partners. These are primarily Physics journals, but some should be of interest to chemists, mathematicians and environmental scientists.
Take a look at IOPScience and see what you think.
We have a trial in place for a new produce, Pharmaceutical Substances (provided by Thieme). Here is an overview and Here is a flyer describing it and providing guidance on searching the database.
Pharmaceutical Substances can be accessed from the library database trials page, or this direct link.
Although this is chemistry-oriented, any of you who work in the area of pharmaceuticals may find it useful.
Please do take a look and let me know if you would be interested in having the library purchase a subscription.
