January and February 2015 E-Resources Summary

This post is the latest in a series designed to keep the Graduate Center community updated about our collections; focused primarily on electronic resources available through the Graduate Center Library.

New Databases

(These and all other databases can be found on our A-Z list)

  • Education Week A national newspaper focusing on K-12 education policy and practice.
  • eMarketer covers digital marketing, media and commerce.
  • Lynda.com an online educational site that includes over 3,000 courses (and over 130,000 videos) in popular fields like web design, web development, IT, education/instruction, media production, and business. Users will need to create accounts in order to track course progress, create playlists of potential coursework, and keep course notes.

Featured Electronic Resource: JSTOR eBooks

Something that has been happening quietly in the background for some time which you may not have noticed: the GC Library has access to a new collection of electronic books through JSTOR. These ebooks, largely titles from university presses, will show up under the “books” tab when you do a search within JSTOR. A smaller collection of items that we have purchased to hold permanently also show up in our CUNY catalog. The books that we have chosen to make accessible through JSTOR are able to be downloaded as PDFs at the chapter level (i.e. ebooks that are without digital restrictions–a topic we will be featuring later this semester in a library workshop!). The next time you are doing a search in JSTOR, click the “Books” tab to see these titles!

Title Changes

  • The database ACO Music Data Analysis is undergoing a name change. It will soon be known as Music Industry Data. For now, we are keeping both names on our A-Z database list, but at some future point we will switch over to just listing Music Industry Data.
  • APA Handbooks in Psychology will soon be integrated within PsycBooks. Make note that all of the same content will still be available both through our link to PsycBook on the A-Z list, and in the CUNY catalog.
