Just a few of the scholarly publishers offering free content this semester
With hundreds of universities around the world now providing all instruction and services online, many scholarly publishers and database providers are offering free emergency access to thousands of online journals, monographs, textbooks, and streaming video.
Some of the publishers offering this temporary access include JSTOR, ProjectMuse, ProQuest, SAGE, Kanopy, and CENGAGE. The dates of free access vary with each vendor from the end of May to the end of June.
We encourage everyone to take advantage of these valuable trials, located on the Library’s campus closure support guide. Please note that this emergency content is not discoverable in Summon. While some vendors, such as JSTOR, are adding the additional content to our existing subscriptions, the best place to know what’s available and access it is through our guide.
While we cannot make any commitments regarding new subscriptions, the librarians will consider seriously all student and faculty opinions of these resources in our purchasing decisions. Please email your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Library currently has trial subscriptions to three premium U.S. and international business databases:
Euromonitor International Passport
Global market research database providing insight on industries, economies, and consumers worldwide. Clients gain an unbiased view of industry sectors, countries, and companies. Euromonitor reports are written by local analysts from around the world and capitalize on their knowledge of the local market, language fluency, and access to the best research sources. Trial ends on Nov. 17, 2016. Click here for a quick YouTube tutorial on Euromonitor International
IBISWorld Global Industry Research Reports
IBISWorld U.S. Industry Reports are one the Library’s most popular business databases. The global economy presents its own set of opportunities and threats for businesses in a range of industries. IBISWorld’s 75 global industry reports offer the same clear and up-to-date forecasts and analysis as their U.S. reports, but focus on industry performance in key regions like Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and more. Trial ends on Nov. 30, 2016. Click here for a quick YouTube tutorial on IBISWorld Industry Reports.
IBISWorld Procurement Reports
IBIS World Procurement Reports concentrate on specific products rather than an industry view. Reports include executive summary, pricing environment product characteristics, supply chain & vendors, purchasing process, negotiation questions, and buyer power score. Trial ends on Nov. 10, 2016.
The Library strives to provide the highest quality databases possible in each discipline. Student and faculty comments are an important part of how we accomplish this.
