If you have been studying at Durham Tech for a couple semesters, you are probably familiar with some of the article databases and other research tools that are available through NC LIVE, such as Academic Search Complete and Newspaper Source Plus. This semester–and continuing through 2017–NC LIVE is subscribing to some new resources you’ll want to use!
ProQuest Central provides access to “thousands of periodical titles and millions of full-text articles.” ProQuest Newsstand replaces Newspaper Source Plus and “offers unparalleled access to the full text of over 1300 newspapers, news websites and blogs from leading publishers throughout the world.”
Other changes include adding Pronunciator, a language learning service; Gale Literature Resource Center for literature research; and streaming videos from Films on Demand! A complete list of the subscription changes is available on the NC LIVE website.
Remember that you can find links to the electronic resources provided by your library from the library’s website. All of the ProQuest databases are already available to everyone affiliated with Durham Tech, so you can start using them if you haven’t already checked them out. Other new databases will become available in early 2015. We also will continue to provide access to the EBSCOhost databases through December, though our subscription expires then and you won’t have access to them after that.
If you need more information about these changes, please contact the Durham Tech Library.
