Data Citation Index

Data Citation Index captures metadata from data repositories in the Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Arts & Humanities. Through linked content and summary information, DCI allows researchers to discover data across subjects and regions in one source as opposed to viewing data sets or data repositories in isolation. DCI currently indexes over two million data studies and data sets, with records which include authors, institutions, and keywords, and which are then connected to related peer-reviewed literature.

Coverage spans 1900 to the present

Early American Newspapers Series I, 1690-1876

Offers fully searchable, cover-to-cover reproductions from more than 700 historical American newspapers from 23 states and the District of Columbia printed between 1690 and 1876.

From Readex:
“Early American newspapers, often printed by small-town printers, documented the daily life of hundreds of diverse American communities, supported different political parties and recorded both majority and minority views. . . Early American Newspapers provides an unparalleled record of the topics, people, issues and events that have shaped America for nearly three centuries.

In Early American Newspapers, users can limit searches to items that fall into such categories as news and opinion, election returns, letters, poetry, legislative information, prices, advertisements, matrimony notices and death notices. An integrated interface allows researchers to cross search all of these series, as well as easily view, magnify, print and save digital images of articles and pages. Advanced search capabilities allow users to search by date, place of publication or article type; browse individual titles and more.”

The entries in DARE include regional pronunciations, variant forms, some etymologies, and regional and social distributions of the words and phrases.

PASCAL adds another e-book package

We can now access EBSCO’s Academic Collection of over 125,000 e-books from major publishers and university presses thanks to an initiative of PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries). There is some overlap with the ebrary collection PASCAL has already licensed, but the majority of the titles are unique.

Eventually there will be records in the catalog for each title, but for now you can access the collection from the Articles and Databases link. Find it alphabetically under E, in the General Purpose subject, and from the Books and Electronic Books types.
