New Databases: January 2018

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

  • ARTIFEX Press is a publisher of digital catalogues raisonnés. Artifex has developed a proprietary, patented software platform and a dedicated research and publishing program in order to produce, edit, and distribute these seminal publications.  Please Click on “Institutional Login” to access.
  • BMJ Best Practice is a new concept for information delivered at the point of care. In a single source there is a combination of the latest research evidence, guidelines and expert opinion – presented in a step-by-step approach, covering prevention, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Best Practice provides a second opinion without the need for checking multiple resources. Its patient-focused approach represents an advancement in information delivery at the point of care.
  • CMIE Prowessdx is the data extraction interface for the Prowess databases from CMIE (Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy,) including data for Indian companies extending back to 1990. It contains daily stock price data and fundamental data for both private and public companies in India, data on ownership and governance (board composition, meetings, major stakeholders, subsidiaries etc.) and data on mergers & acquisitions.  Users must create an individual account for access.
