New Databases

Over the summer the library expanded its digital collection to now include several more research databases:

Consumer Health Complete (EBSCO)
A “comprehensive resource for consumer-oriented health content. It is designed to support patients’ information needs and foster an overall understanding of health-related topics.” This database includes articles and eBooks.

JSTOR
Offers several subject specific collections of full text academic journals in the humanities. The collection the MSJ Library provides focuses specifically on the areas of music, art, religion, and literature.

Opposing Viewpoints
A database that is helpful for writing critical essays, researching reports or term papers, or preparing for a debate, or just the latest information on hot topics.

Points of View Reference Center (EBSCO)
“A full text database designed to provide students and schools with a series of controversial essays that present multiple sides of a current issue. Essays provide questions and materials for further thought and study and are accompanied by thousands of supporting articles from the world’s top political and societal publications.”

Science Reference Center (EBSCO)
A “comprehensive research database that provides easy access to a multitude of full-text science-oriented content. Designed to meet every student’s science research needs, Science Reference Center contains full text for hundreds of science encyclopedias, reference books, periodicals, and other sources.  Topics covered include: biology, chemistry, earth & space science, environmental science, health & medicine, history of science, life science, physics, science & society, science as inquiry, scientists, technology and wildlife. Science Reference Center also satisfies the demand for standards-based content by providing teachers and librarians with articles correlated to state and national curriculum standards.”

Please note: if you are off campus, these databases require you to login using your library card/AllCard.
