  • ROYAL SOCIETY – The society has released its digital scientific archives dating back over 300 years. It would be a great resource for classroom pedagogy,  your own research, and as a source for original undergraduate research projects.
    • New LibGuides have been published with brief overviews of writing literature reviews and creating research proposals.
    • A common we get is, “How do I search or How do I start searching?” If you have used the databases before and want to dive in further, you can save yourself a lot of time by practicing the techniques shared in this our LibGuide (a.k.a research guide), Building Useful Database Search Strategies.
    • Knowing where to search and how to search can seem daunting. Never fear. Our new Finding Articles and Books LibGuide compares differences between several major multidisciplinary databases with CloudSearch. We also share tips on how to use them.
  • Fall EBSCO Update: Please remember that our EBSCO databases via TexShare will be dropped by August 31st. They are being left on in the summer to give the online course content developers time to make adjustments. Our Texshare LibGuide shares the details of what we gain from the Texshare databases as well as what we lose. Be sure to click the EBSCO Losses tab and download the list of journal titles we are losing.
    • Please note that this excludes ATLA, CINAHL, the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) databases, American Psychological Association databases and EBSCO E-books as we subscribe to them on our own.
    • Now may be a good time to evaluate your journal use. If you regularly explore specific journal titles in EBSCO databases, then you need to check to see if another database carries that same title. If not, you will lose all access.
    • This will affect online course development. If there are links to journals or articles in online courses from an affected journal, you will need to find academically equivalent journals or articles to replace them.
    • If you have any questions, please contact Dean Riley at 281-649-3182 or email
