Dear Colleagues:

The Libraries are offering a trial of Gale’s Business Insights: Global.

Gale Business Insights: Global uses case studies, statistical data sources, news articles, academic journals and topical reference materials organized by country, company and industry to quickly engage users in the global business environment.”

The Libraries also have a trial to Series 4 of the AAS Historical Periodicals Collection through Ebsco.  “EBSCO partners with American Antiquarian Society (AAS), the premier library documenting the life of America’s people from the Colonial Era through the Civil War and Reconstruction, to provide digital access to the most comprehensive collection of American periodicals published between 1691 and 1877. This collection includes digitized images of American magazines and journals never before available outside the walls of the AAS, and is not available for acquisition in digital form from any other source. More than 7,600 periodicals comprised of over seven million pages are available, eclipsing all other online resources in this area. American Antiquarian Society (AAS) Historical Periodicals Collection: Series 4 presents over 1,200 titles dating from 1853 through 1865. While the Civil War is a key focal point of Series 4, it also features a diverse record of the continuance of daily life for many Americans—both leading up to and during the war. News from the battlefront is found, in addition to the usual breadth of subject matter found in Series 1-3 (e.g., science, literature, medicine, agriculture, women’s fashion, family life, and religion).”  From http://www.ebscohost.com/archives/featured-archives/american-antiquarian-society
