New Databases for Fall 2012!

We have added three new databases to our collection, all of which offer access to premiere resources in the sciences, engineering, and humanities.  Here is some more  information about what each database can offer you in your research:

American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is considered a cutting-edge publisher of aerospace books and journals, as well as the leading source of the aerospace industry archives dating back to the early 1900s.  In the past 80 years they have published almost 200,000 technical articles as well as 300 books on leading topics in the aerospace industry.  On their site, you can browse through their multitude of journals, books, meeting proceedings, and standards on the latest research in air and space history.

Early English Books Online (EEBO) contains scanned images of virtually every work printed in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and British North America from 1473-1700.  The subjects in this collection range from English literature to music to science. We here at Salmon Library provide access to all four of their collections, which contain key documents from the English Renaissance, the rebirth of classical humanism, the English Civil War, the Restoration, as well as British daily life from the 16th and 17th century.

Science is the world’s leading journal of scientific research, global news, and commentary.  Browse through their collections on the life sciences, physical sciences, as well as in policy, business, and the philosophy of science.  As of July 2012, Science had an impact factor of 31.2 and a five-year impact factor of 32.45.

To access any of our databases off-campus, you simply need your Charger ID, and your default password which is your first and last initial, and the last six digits of your A#.  If you are having any difficulty, please visit this page or contact the Reference Desk at 256-824-6529.  Let us know what you think of these new resources!
