Database News: GreenFILE, Changes and more…

June 20, 2008


GreenFILE is an EBSCO multidisciplinary database that draws on the connections between the environment and a variety of disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health, and technology. The database attempts to cover the impact people and organizations can have on the environment and contains over 384,000 records. Topics include global warming, green building, pollution, sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, recycling, and more.

Interface Change for Two History Databases

We now have the EBSCO interface for America: History and Life and Historical Abstracts and the result is you can search these databases in the same way you search Academic Search Premier.

America: History and Life covers the history of the United States and Canada with Historical Abstracts covering the rest of the world. Both databases index a variety of journalism and communication journals and cover topics ranging from newspapers and journalism to television and film.

All journal content on Blackwell Synergy is merging into Wiley InterScience

If you are having trouble getting into some of your journals this may be the reason. Both Synergy and InterScience will be down over the weekend of June 27 while they complete the transition. All links from the library catalog should transfer so if you have problems with the ArticleLinker from our databases, check the library catalog first and then contact the reference desk.  Also, no new Wiley-Blackwell content will be published online from June 21st until July 7th. After July 7th, publication schedules will resume.

These communication journals are affected:

Communication, Culture & Critique
Human Communication Research
Journal of Communication
Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication

Synergy also contains many journals in the fields of history, psychology and sociology that can utilized by the journalism and communication scholar. You can see the list of Auburn subscribed journals affected here.
