New Databases: February 2019

The NYU Libraries regularly acquires new databases. Take a look at the new database we added to our collection in February 2019.

  • Bloomsbury Applied Visual Arts is a comprehensive visual arts education guide and resource that offers searchable access to books which combine visual inspiration with practical advice on idea generation, research techniques, portfolio development and more, across the main visual arts disciplines.
  • Bloomsbury Architecture Library is a resource for the study of architecture, urbanism, and interior design. The platform offers access to a curated collection of fully-searchable text and image content, incorporating the new edition of Sir Banister Fletcher’s Global History of Architecture, exclusive to the platform, alongside peer-reviewed academic research and a wealth of images.
  • Bloomsbury Cultural History is an interactive online resource providing digital access to Bloomsbury’s Cultural Histories series. Made up of curated and illustrated reference works alongside eBook and image collections, Bloomsbury Cultural History presents content within a single, fully cross-searchable platform.
  • Dictionary of Old English: A to I (DOE) defines the vocabulary of the first six centuries (C.E. 600-1150) of the English language, using twenty-first century technology. DOE:A to I is a reference for all scholars of Old and Middle English.
  • Directory of Music Faculties is a database of music faculties in colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada.
  • Foreign Policy offers insight and analysis of global affairs for leaders from government, business, finance, and the academic world.
  • Military Balance Plus (MB+) allows access to wide-ranging data and enables users to customize, view, compare and download data. Data sets are continuously monitored and updated by IISS analysts in the Defense and Military Analysis Program.
  • Translations of the Peking Gazette Online is a comprehensive database of English-language renderings of official edicts and memorials from the Qing dynasty that cover China’s long nineteenth century from the Macartney Mission in 1793 to the abdication of the last emperor in 1912. As the mouthpiece of the government, the Peking Gazette is the authoritative source for information about the Manchu state and its Han subjects as they collectively grappled with imperial decline, re-engaged with the wider world, and began mapping the path to China’s contemporary rise.
  • Wiley Digital Archives is a continuous program of new databases comprised of historical primary sources, digitized from societies, libraries, and archives around the world, and made accessible in ways that tie directly to research outcomes and educational goals. All Archives are cross-searchable, and contain tools for searching, browsing, analyzing and visualizing primary source content.
