Trial databases subscriptions at the Library

These databases are so cool!
The Library currently has five database trials underway:

  • Ambrose Digital Video—Over 1,200 award-winning, streaming videos in social studies, literature, fine arts, and the sciences.
  • Business Insights: Global—Designed especially for the undergraduate business student, Business Insights: Global allows researchers to analyze companies, industries, and economies around the world.
  • Gale World Scholar—A new regional-studies resource ideal for research in history, anthropology, political science, diplomacy, sociology, economics and comparative studies. The database currently contains a module for Latin America. A Middle East module is on the horizon.

Regent students, staff, and faculty may access these databases with their Regent ID & Password via the links above. The trial of Ambrose Digital Video lasts through November 24, 2011; the Business Insights: Global and Gale World Scholar trials last through November 22, 2011.

The Library also has trials for two additional business databases for company and industry research:

  • Hoovers/First Research—Best in class data made up of 65 million companies, 85 million people, and 700 industries.
  • BizMiner—Industry financial ratios, balance sheet and detailed Profit & Loss statements for 5,500 lines of business.

Regent University students, staff, and faculty may request access to Hoovers/First Research and BizMiner by contacting Harold Henkel at harohen@regent.edu. The trial for these databases lasts through November 17, 2011.
