New Find a Database page
You may have already noticed the new Find a Database page. The new design makes it easier for you and your students to find the online resources you need. The new page emphasizes finding resources by subject, rather than the previous design’s emphasis on title. A new feature allows you to see a list of databases according to the format of the content (e.g., journal articles, primary sources, multimedia). Users can still easily find a database by name, and a selection of the most frequently used databases can be found under “Quick Picks.”
ZSR added several new databases this summer. Please share with your library liaison how you use these resources to enhance your teaching and research.
Primary-source document collections
- Making of the Modern World: Tracks the development of the modern, Western world through the lens of trade and wealth from the period 1450-1914.
- Nineteenth-Century Collections Online: Covers British society, European literature, and relationships between Asia and the West in the 19th century.
- Romanticism: Life, Literature and Landscape: Manuscript collections of the Wordsworth Trust.
- ZSR also purchased 16 new Archives Unbound collections. Archives Unbound features relatively small collections of historical documents focused on specific topics. Each collection is listed by its title, or you can search Find a Database for “Archives Unbound” to retrieve them all. Newly added:
