We are adding access to an increasing number of electronic resources each day for many disciplines. Our primary management is through TDNet, but don’t forget TOPCAT for links also. “Check out” Learning through History, Environment and Planning (A and B), Geocarto International, limited online articles for Liberal Education and Peer Review (ASCU publications), Families in Society, Affilia, Journal of School Nursing, and Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution. A new database is Family & Society Studies Worldwide, which absorbed Family Index recently. . .and more on the way!
In TOPCAT alone, we have over 12,000 bibliographic records with links to electronic journals (thanks to WKU’s participation in a pilot project) and in TDNet, access to full text or citation/abstract level to over 26,000 titles! So whatever your major, whatever your research project or short paper, you should find relevant information through WKU Libraries!
We also have print copies of many of these titles, so come to Helm 2 or link from your computer. Either way, library resources are at your fingertips!
Just added: online access to International Abstracts of Human Resources. This is also a print index and continues the title: Personnel Management Abstracts. Covers management, human resources, and personnel topics.
