New Database Available

We are very pleased to announce that CUA students, faculty and staff now have access to the Education Research Complete database. We hope you will find it helpful. It includes bibliographic information and abstracts of articles from over 1600 journals, full text from over 1000 of those, and the full text of over 130 books and numerous conference papers. It covers all levels and specializations in education and education administration. It also crosses into areas such as psychology, health/nursing, and social work. As with all library databases, access is available from any internet connected computer.  Off campus users, log in using your CUA ID number.

Libraries Add New Online Journal Content

The University Libraries now offer full online access to over 2,000 journals published by Springer and Sage. These peer-reviewed scholarly journals cross all disciplines, and include some of the most significant academic titles currently published. All of the titles are accessible through the CU e-journals link on our homepage or the Find It button within database search results. Online backfiles for Springer titles are available from 1997, Sage titles from 1999. The Libraries are able to offer these significant collections of titles, in the online format preferred by our users, through our membership in the PALINET library network and special offers from the publishers. By moving our small number of print titles from these two publishers to online only, we have added thousands of new titles and actually lowered our costs.
