Try something new: Islam, investment, architecture, health sciences, and more trials

We’re always looking for exciting new content that may be useful to researchers here at NU. The NU Libraries will often subscribe to a web site for a trial period…if the site is appealing to YOU, and funding is available, we’ll purchase access for the university. A lot of trials are going on right now! One offer for students of African Americans: the Black Studies Center and Historical Black newspapers. If you’re interested in art and architecture, Ebsco’s Art and Architecture Complete would complement the well-known Avery Index database by offering more full-text access. And as always, the health sciences are well-represented with the AMA Manual to help you publish, the Henry Stewart Talks which are audiovisual lectures, Ageline, with health information about those who are over 50, and CINAHL plus with full text, a kind of “CINAHL on steroids” with more full text than our existing CINAHL, plus books, continuing ed modules, quick lessons, and one-million-plus citations. There’s a trial of BuildingGreen for students of sustainable building, Asia Studies Full Text which includes working papers and other grey literature in addition to articles, Index Islamicus listing scholarly articles for students of Islam, and the well-known Morningstar Investment Research, which would fill a current library gap in fund analysis information. If you’re a user of BIOSIS, you may prefer ISI BIOSIS, where it can be searched alongside Web of Science. Please feel free to try these out, and help us make recommendations by evaluating them with us!
