WilsonWeb’s Content Moves to EBSCOhost

As of January 2012, one of our favorite article databases, WilsonWeb (OmniFile Full Text, Art Abstracts, Art Index Retrospective, and the Play Index), has moved to the EBSCOhost site.

The content of the databases remains the same, only the interface and branding have changed. The move is a result of EBSCO Industries’ June 2011 acquisition of the H.W. Wilson Company.

Access to the old WilsonWeb site will end on February 1. Please contact our Digital Initiatives & Systems Librarian, Josh Roberts joroberts@uarts.edu, with any questions or concerns.

Many of you are already familiar with EBSCOhost and will welcome the switch. Please note that this change applies only to WilsonWeb and no other resources.

New catalog search options

You can now limit your catalog searches to specific parts of our collections, using the “In:” options.

Just want to find DVDs or VHS?  Use the “Video” option.

Looking for a piece of music’s score and a performance of it?  Try “Music (scores & recordings)”.

You can also find only “Electronic Resources”, or conversely, limit to “Print Only” to find good old-fashioned books and journals.

“Audio” finds CDs, LPs, or cassettes; “Book Arts” just searches our collection of artists’ books; and “Reference” searches our reference sections, including online sources.

And of course, you can still choose “Entire Collection” to search through all of our holdings.

We hope these enhancements will improve your search experience and help you more quickly find the materials you need.  Please send any questions or comments to Josh Roberts, Digital Initiatives & Systems Librarian, joroberts@uarts.edu.

New E-Journal Finder!

The UArts Libraries are pleased to announce a major upgrade to our website’s e-journal listings.  The new E-Journal Finder has detailed holdings information for all 10,054 (and growing!) journals that we have access to online.

You can search for specific journal titles or browse the contents of each of our full-text databases.  Remember, an individual journal may be available in more than one database, with differing dates in each.

Our old e-journal listings may still be found here, but they are no longer being maintained and will eventually disappear.
