Research Art, Music, Medicine, & Everything!

The librarians are excited to announce four new databases to make life easier for researchers, including the coveted LexisNexis. Parham Campus Library Coordinator Hong Wu provides descriptions for each new online tool:

Medline with Full Text — Provides full text for nearly 1,200 journals on a broad range of medical topics relating to research, clinical practice, administration, policy issues, and health care services. Some of the full text coverage dates back to 1965.

LexisNexis Academic — Provides full-text documents from over 6,000 news, business, legal, medical and reference sources, including regional, national and international newspapers, broadcast transcripts, U.S. and international company financial information, market research, industry reports, SEC filings, U.S. Federal and state case law, codes, regulations, law reviews, patents, Shepard’s Citations for all U.S. Supreme Court cases back to 1789, plus polls and surveys from the Roper Center, biographies and country and state profiles.

 Grove Art  — Comprises the full text of The Dictionary of Art, edited by Jane Turner (1996, 34 vols) and The Oxford Companion to Western Art, edited by Hugh Brigstocke (2001). Includes over 3,000 thumbnail art images and line drawings in the text of articles. Links to searchable image databases and editorially selected links to over 40,000 art images on museum and gallery web sites around the world.

Grove Music  — Comprises the full text of The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, second edition, edited by Stanley Sadie and John Tyrrell (London, 2001), The New Grove Dictionary of Opera, edited by Stanley Sadie (London, 1992), and The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, second edition, edited by Barry Kernfeld (London, 2002).  Through a partnership with Sibelius notation software, over 500 of Grove’s musical examples are now available in sound as well as notated examples.

From off-campus you can access these databases with your MyJSRCC login information. Remember to log out of databases when you finish if there is a “Log out” or “Exit” option.
