New Databases: January 2019

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

  • Armed Conflict Database (ACD) provides monitoring, data and analysis on armed conflicts worldwide, ranging from rebellions and insurgencies to civil wars and inter-state conflicts.
  • Critical Collective is an initiative by art curator and critic Gayatri Sinha. Critical Collective works towards building knowledge of the arts in India. Since its inception in 2011, it has collaborated with institutions in India and abroad to create exhibitions and seminars on art. In order to expand the scale of its activities, Critical Collective created this website. This resource is intended to fill in the lacuna caused by an absence of publishing in the arts, a lack of reprints and a shortage of institutional infrastructure in India to support knowledge in the domain of arts.
  • John Johnson Collection: An Archive of Printed Ephemera provides access to selected items offering insights into the changing nature of everyday life in Britain in the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Categories include Nineteenth-Century Entertainment, the Booktrade, Popular Prints, Crimes, Murders and Executions, and Advertising.
  • Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland (RAI) Archive is a scholarly association dedicated to the furtherance of anthropology (the study of humankind) in its broadest and most inclusive sense.
  • Twentieth Century Religious Thought is a multivolume, cross-searchable online collection that brings together the seminal works and archival materials related to worldwide religious thinkers, from the early 1900s until the turn of the 21st century.
    • Volume I, Christianity includes the complete 17-volume German edition of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Werke (DBW) and English edition of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works Series (DBWE).
    • Volume II, Islam focuses on modern Islamic theology and tradition and details Islam’s evolution from the late 19th century by examining printed works and documents by Muslim writers, both non-Western and Western voices.
