During the month of March, the library will have a display of the recent consumer health books the library purchased. Consumer health books are books on health-related issues written for you and me, not doctors or science students. These books can be found in the catalog by performing a subject search using the phrase "consumer health collection".
These books were purchased and selected with the assistance from the Dean of Students and the THC. This collection will grow over the next two years.
If you have any specific requests or topics you feel we should cover, you can email me or Radka or anonymously make suggestions via our mailbox in Mather.
ProQuest's database, National Newspapers Premier*, has expanded its holdings. It now includes more regional newspapers, all available in Full-Text. The following are the titles we now have access to via ProQuest:
New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Christian Science Monitor, Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Seattle Post Intelligencer, USA Today, Philadelphia Inquirer, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, New York Daily News, Detroit News, Minneapolis Star Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, Sacramento Bee, Denver Post, San Diego Union Tribune, Denver Post, San Diego Union Tribune, Las Vega Review Journal, Houston Chronicle, San Antonio Express News, St. Petersburg Times, and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
ProQuest has also separated its prominent Black newspapers into a separate database called Black Newspapers*. This is useful if you are doing research specifically on this demographic, etc. because you can now limit your search within these nine titles as a group, instead of all ProQuest's newspapers or as individual titles.
*This is one of the databases that you automatically search when you search ProQuest.
