TRIAL: 5 Iter Gateway databases (Middle Ages & Renaissance)

We have a trial of 5 databases on the Iter Gateway until 31st December 2007.

Iter, meaning a journey or a path in Latin, is a not-for-profit research project with partners in Toronto (the headquarters), New York City, and Tempe. Iter was created for the advancement of learning in the study and teaching of the Middle Ages and Renaissance (400-1700) through the development of online resources.

The Iter Bibliography

2. The John Milton Bibliography (MRTS Online)

The Iter Italicum Bibliography

Journal: Renaissance and Reformation

Journal: Early Theatre & Records of Early English Drama

After trying any or of all of these resources please leave a comment - please make it clear which resource(s) you are commenting on!

World Scientific e-journals trial - extended coverage

Our trial of World Scientific e-journals only included the 2005 and 2006 volumes for most titles, with just a few from 2001 to 2006.

We have now been granted access to 2001 onwards for most titles (or from the first available volume if that is later than 2001).

Catalogue records and SFX (find it @ liverpool) have been updated.

NEW: Big Deals for Liebert, IOS Press, Guilford Publications

Following extended trials of all the e-journals from these 3 publishers, usage has shown that we would achieve better value by subscribing to a 'Big Deal' in each case.

We therefore now have online-only subscriptions to all journals currently published by:

Mary Ann Liebert
IOS Press
Guilford Publications

Any print subscriptions to journals from these publishers will be cancelled at the end of 2007.

We are continuing to trial all journals from Future Medicine / Future Drugs, Haworth Press, Inderscience, Karger, the Royal Society of Medicine and World Scientific.
