New Database Page on Libraries’ Web

There is a new improved way to access the Libraries’ electronic resources!

We have reorganized the “Articles via Databases” page on the Libraries’ website to include many discipline-specific categories to assist you with your research. By using these categories, you will see recommended databases and electronic resources selected by the Libraries’ selectors. In many cases, you will also be able perform a combined (federated) search of these databases.

If you do not pick a category, the default is “General Search,” which searches Proquest, Wilson Omni and JSTOR.

The A-Z list of databases has been enhanced with detailed descriptions.
The list of “popular databases” has been made more prominent.

Access the new page by choosing the Articles via Databases link on the Library homepage, http://library.nyu.edu or by going directly to http://arch.library.nyu.edu.

Additional new features, which will be included in Library workshops in the Fall, include saving and exporting individual citations, searching and sorting by self-labeled citations, and creating sets of federated databases to both search and embed in any web page.

A questions / comments link is available for your feedback.
