New databases for you!   Leave a comment

The Library has three new databases that we are excited about:

  1. Byki language-learning software is a powerful and personalized language-learning system, designed to advance your new language proficiency by expanding your vocabulary reservoir.
  2. JSTOR includes core journals in economics, history, political science, and sociology, as well as in other key fields in the humanities and social sciences. This collection also contains titles in ecology, mathematics, and statistics.
  3. The Gross Anatomy Dissector makes possible the teaching and learning of all anatomy, from head to toe, in a rigorous, yet approachable manner. The anatomy is presented precisely as a first-year medical student encounters it, dissects it, and is assessed on it.

Take a look at them from the Articles and More link on the Library’s home page.
