In 2011, the Millsaps-Wilson Library added new databases to help support student research, and below are introductions to two of them. At the end of this post are instructions on how to access these new databases through the library’s website. We hope that you find these databases useful, and if you have any questions please let us know.
Education Research Complete – EBSCO
Students in education, psychology, social work, and biology, just to name a few, can find full text journal articles through this EBSCO database. Education Research Complete provides indexing and abstracts for more than 2,100 journals, as well as full text for more than 1,200 journals, and includes full text for nearly 500 books and monographs.
Westlaw Campus Research
Westlaw Campus Research covers thousands of publications, most of which are available in full text. It is especially useful for legal research, as well as for current news coverage and business. Many newspapers from major cities are available through this database, and regional newspapers include the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, and the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
How to Access Library Databases:
From the library’s homepage [http://www.millsaps.edu/library.php]:
On the library’s homepage, find the second (middle) blue shaded box in the center of the screen. Find the link for “All Article Databases & Indexes.” You can either click on this link to see a complete listing of all library databases, or click on the appropriate letter if you know the name of the database you would like to use.
In the Subject Guides/Topic Guides:
The Subject Guides and Topic Guides can be found in the bottom blue shaded box in the center of the library’s homepage screen. These drop down menus offer you the option to browse resources for a specific subject, major, or class.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to ask a librarian in person, by phone (x1073 or 601-974-1073), or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
