2016 has been busy for the UCR Library Collection Services Department.

They have recently streamlined the system for online resource requests, and reviewed almost 100 requests and approved the acquisition of 50 different databases, journals, and e-book packages. This has significantly expanded the Library’s access to resources to support our growing student and faculty population.

A few of the newly-acquired resources include:

  • Social Explorer, which contains census and demographic data
  • Hein Online, a collection of legal journals and case law
  • The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations
  • LGBTQ History and Culture, an online archive supporting gender and sexuality studies
  • Springer Materials, an invaluable collection of data on the properties of materials

Department head Kuei Chiu and his team have been working hard to negotiate for expanded versions of existing databases. We now provide access to Gale’s complete collection of British Library Newspapers, cross-searchable with other primary sources via the new Gale Artemis platform.

We also have access to the Americana history collection from Adam Matthew Digital, historical periodicals from EBSCO including the American Antiquarian Society journals, and several collections from Archives Unbound covering many disciplines.

What does this mean for our users? Even greater access to the resources necessary to support teaching, research, and learning.

Come explore on our newly-designed website.
