New! Natural Standard integrative medicine database is now available through WKU Libraries. Natural Standard lets you find comprehensive, evidence-based, peer-reviewed information on foods, herbs, supplements and natural therapies. Sections include color photographs, history, dosage, interactions, adverse effects, allergies, efficacy, pregnancy/lactation data and mechanism of action. Available evidence is collected from a variety of scholarly sources, summarized, and graded. Patient handouts in English & Spanish & CE/CME programs included.
Natural Standard was founded by clinicians from Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and University of California in response to widespread use of complementary and alternative therapies and lack of reliable sources of information. Monographs undergo blinded review by clinical and research faculty at academic medical centers.
Natural Standard is available on or off campus. You can find it in the Databases list on the Library website, or through the TOPCAT online catalog.

Western Kentucky University Libraries have recently added the complete archives of Vogue magazine to our electronic resource collection. As the publisher describes this useful database:
“The Vogue Archive contains the entire run of Vogue magazine (US edition), from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included, with rich indexing enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand names. In addition to the editorial content, all covers, advertisements and pictorial features have been captured as separate documents to allow for searching and discovery. You can also limit your search by journal editor, to find items published during the editorship of, say, Diana Vreeland (1963-71) or Anna Wintour (1988-present).”
This database will be a highly valuable resource across many disciplines, including:
• Textiles and dress
• Fashion history
• Popular culture
• Gender studies
• Photography and graphic design
• Marketing and advertising
This resource if available both on- and off-campus (off-campus users will log in with their NetID and password). We are delighted to be able to offer the Vogue Archive, and we invite all our library users to try it out soon!
