ScienceDirect College Edition web journals out Saturday Mar. 7

ScienceDirect College Edition web-based electronic journals will be unavailable from Saturday, March 7 at noon for twelve and a half hours. This service is available directly, but these 5500 journals also appear in Journal Finder and Get it! There are several sub-collections: Physical Science and Engineering, Life Sciences, Health Sciences, and Social Sciences and Humanities. The time and length of the outage was set by the company in a recent email. It could last a little longer.

World Book now online!

During the summer of 2008 we were able to add the World Book Online family to our research databases. This service has browsable and searchable full text of the World Book encyclopedia. It includes a dictionary, an atlas and special features, like Explore Louisiana. Links at the bottom of the page to World Book Discover (for secondary school students), Online Reference Center, World Book Kids, and the Spanish and French World Books.  Ask questions at the Learning Commons Desk in person or by telephone at 504-864-7111.
