Shapiro Library is beginning  the New Year with five exciting new Electronic Resources added to our collection.  Sage Publications and Gale: a Cengage Learning Company have made available “offers we could not refuse.”

Sage Online Journals provides access to 450 full-text publications in Business, Humanities, Social Sciences and Science, Technology and Medicine back to 1999.  More journals will be added throughout the year. 
Gale digitized all volumes in their well-know Literary Criticism Collection and made it available online in a new database entitled,  Literature Criticism Online.  Shapiro Library now subscribes to "Contemporary Literary Criticism – 1960-2007"; "Nineteenth Literary Criticism – 1900-1960"; and "Twentieth- Century Literary Criticism" and plans to add "Shakespearean Literary Criticism" in the next fiscal year.

Additionally, Legal Periodicals Full Text and Criminal Justice Abstracts have been added to support the research needs of the growing Justice Studies program.  Legal Periodicals Full Text contains coverage of important English language legal information in scholarly articles, jurisdictional surveys, court decisions, legislation, books, and book reviews’.  The indexing is from 1981 forward; the abstracting is from 1990 forward; and the selective full text is from 1995 to the present. 

Criminal Justices Abstracts the criminology database from SAGE Publications, contains comprehensive coverage of international journals, books, reports, dissertations and unpublished papers on criminology and related disciplines.  Although full text of the publications is not included, our linking software takes the user to the article in other databases or to a prefilled interlibrary loan form.

Last, but not least, the commitment letter for a subscription to Proquest’s Digital Dissertations and Theses: Full Text has been signed.  This database is the most comprehensive collection of dissertations and theses in the world. The coverage, which starts in 1637, provides citations, abstracts and a large selection of full text documents available in PDF format for immediate free download.

All the new resources may be found on the Electronic Resources A-Z page of the Shapiro Library website. For more information Ask-A-Librarian or contact Carol West, Electronic Resources Librarian, at
