New Find Articles and DBs Coming Soon

Compare the new Articles & Databases and the old Find Articles & Databases.

The Library is about to roll-out a new version of the popular Find Articles and Database pages that students and faculty use to access over 200 databases subscribed to by the Library.

The new version has a simpler look and feel, while providing enhanced services. For instance, the new SimpleSearch feature will allow you to search up to 10 databases at one time. The default is to search the Most Useful databases for a given subject, but you can check and un-check databases to include a mix of Most and Also Useful DBs. To see how this works, try the link below and select a subject, Anthropology or Business are good choices, then click the Search Multiple Databases link under the SimpleSearch heading. Note that there is a reason these are called Simple Searches. To get the most out of a database, it’s always best to search that database directly.

We’re shooting to make the new version of Find Articles and Databases live on Monday September 28th. In the meantime, take a look and let us know what you think.

Compare the new Articles & Databases and the old Find Articles & Databases.

Library of Congress experimenting with Flickr

Door and window in a Spanish-American home, Costilla, New Mexico (LOC)Here’s a great example of a major cultural organization experimenting with Web 2.0. The Library of Congress has recently started using Flickr to expand awareness of their collections, and to solicit the more active engagement of viewers.

“The Library of Congress invites you to explore history visually by looking at interesting photos from our collections. Please add tags and comments, too! More words are needed to help more people find and use these pictures.”

Initial photo sets include “1930s-40s in Color” (with photos from the Farm Security Administration and the Office of War Information) and “News in the 1910s.” The URL for the Library of Congress pilot project on flickr is:

We are exploring putting some images from our special collections in Flickr as well. Stay tuned.
