Hello everyone, and welcome back for a new year!
You may have seen that our favourite databases Historical Abstracts and America: History & Life have a new look.
All the usual search features are there; keyword searching, subject indexes, languages, and historical time periods.
You can set up automatic search alerts to keep up to date with the latest publications, and now RSS feeds are available.
You can also search both the databases simultaneously, or together with other EBSCO databases such as Academic Search Premier, ATLA Religion Database, EconLit, and several others.
There are links from some of the records to make it easier for you to get access to the full text articles.
You can export the records directly into an EndNote library (although the titles are still all in upper case so will need some editing).
These databases were originally published by ABC-CLIO, and were acquired by EBSCO in 2007. The old version will still be available until mid-2008. Just click the ABC-CLIO VERSION button when you log in to the database.
