Through the CUNY consortium, the City Tech Library now has access to two new Gale databases:
- 17th-18th Century Burney Collection Newspapers
The 17th-18th Century Burney Collection Newspapers represents the largest and most comprehensive collection of early English news media, charting the development of newspapers, the free press, and the concept of news and totaling almost one-million pages and approximately 1,270 titles.
- National Geographic Magazine Archive 1888 to 1994
Historical archive of National Geographic from 1888 to 1994. (Content from April 2005 until three months ago is freely available at http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/archives/.)
Furthermore, the following two databases were supplemented with their respective “Part 2” counterparts:
The following two series have been added to the Gale Virtual Reference Library:
- For Students Series (includes: Drama for Students; Novels for Students; Poetry for Students; and Short Stories for Students)
- Scribner Writers Online (includes: American Writers Series; British Writers Series; and more)
If you’re having difficulties accessing the databases or e-books, check out the library’s instructions on accessing electronic resources from home. If you’re still having trouble, don’t hesitate to ask a librarian!
Until Saturday, April 7, 2012, we have trial access to the brand new database Business Insights: Global from Gale. You can use it to research and analyze companies, industries, and economies around the world. It provides you with robust data sets, visualization tools, and case studies to help you interpret a global business landscape.
The database is available only from on-campus, so you must access it from the library or elsewhere on campus.
Your feedback is greatly appreciated in assessing trial databases. Please contact Prof. Allie Verbovetskaya at email@example.com with your comments, questions, or concerns about Gale Business Insights: Global.
The new year is young but it’s already brought a lot of changes to the City Tech Library! We’re very excited about one such change in particular:
The very popular Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL) has been upgraded to a sleeker and shinier interface. The functionality remains the same — with improvements, actually, to the overall searching experience. We hope you’ll find that the new interface will encourage you to stay longer, search deeper, and find what you need faster.
The new look is engaging and inviting… so take some time out to search in GVRL today!
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Prof. Allie Verbovetskaya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our digital reference collection just keeps expanding! You can find these Gale digital encyclopedias either by title in the CUNY Catalog or within Gale Virtual Reference (use the advanced search and search by publication title:
