New e-resources

eresources@cambridgeI don’t know how many of you keep up with e-resource news. The UL has recently subscribed to four new e-resources and announced two e-resource trials. We occasionally mention new e-resources but we recommend that you to keep up with this news yourself by visiting the eResources etc. blog and/or monitoring its rss feed (using, for instance, Google Reader). Also, the UL has a New electronic resources updates news page as well as a Trial resources news page both of which offer rss feeds.

In brief, the four new e-resources are:

The Times Literary Supplement Historical Archive (1902-2006) — this replaces the Centenary Archive that previously provided issues of the TLS up to 1990. The full-text search has a much-improved interface.

ICE Virtual Library civil engineering ebooks — 21 civil engineering ebooks with unlimited simultaneous access. Catalogue records will be loaded and searchable through LibrarySearch shortly.

Dictionary of Old English A-G online — complements our existing access to the Dictionary of Old English Web Corpus comprising at least one copy of every surviving Old English text.

Welsh Journals Online — a large archive of Welsh and English texts in Welsh language and Welsh-focused publications from 1821 to the present: 400,000 pages of text in both English and Welsh of around 50 titles.

The two e-resource trials are:

Index to Printed Music and the RIPM – Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals. Trial period: Friday 13 January 2012 to Friday 10 February 2012.

Classic Mexican Cinema Online from the Archives of the Filmoteca of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). It covers the Golden Age of Mexican cinema, from the 1930s to 1960. Trial period:  17th of January to the 15th of February. No off campus access to this.
