New Databases: February 2018

The NYU Libraries regularly acquires new databases. Take a look at the new databases we added to our collection in February 2018:

  • Oxford Research Encyclopedias offer long-form overview articles written, peer-reviewed, and edited by leading scholars. Each of the twenty-five distinct encyclopedias cover both foundational and cutting-edge topics in order to develop, over time, an anchoring knowledge base for major areas of research across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.

           NYU Libraries are subscribing to following ORE modules:

             American history
             Communication
             Latin American history
             Politics
             Religion
             Social Work

  • Nineteenth-Century American Drama: Popular Culture and Entertainment, 1820-1900 (Readex) includes a wide variety of works such as historical plays, melodramas, political satires, minstrel shows, comic operas, musical extravaganzas, parlor entertainments, adaptations of novels, and many others.
  • Struggles for Freedom: Southern Africa (JSTOR) brings together materials from various archives and libraries throughout the world documenting colonial rule, dispersion of exiles, international intervention, and the worldwide networks that supported successive generations of resistance within the region.
  • Swank Digital Campus provides legal movie streaming to students outside of the classroom.
  • Routledge Encyclopedia of Modernism brings together interdisciplinary content about the Modernist period. Users can discover articles that are organized by theme, artistic movement, or place.
