UNB Libraries is delighted we now have access to the 17th-18th century Burney Collection newspapers!
The newspapers, pamphlets, and books gathered by the Reverend Charles Burney (1757-1817) represent the largest and most comprehensive collection of early English news media. The present digital collection, that helps chart the development of the concept of ‘news’ and ‘newspapers’ and the “free press”, totals almost 1 million pages and contains approximately 1,270 titles. Many of the Burney newspapers are well known, but many pamphlets and broadsides also included have remained largely hidden. These treasures can now be searched, browsed and discovered again within Gale Digital Collections.
UNB Libraries is excited to announce our new e-resource Gerritsen Collection of Aletta H. Jacobs!
This database is the definitive cross-cultural resource for information on women’s history. It spans more than four centuries and 15 languages and includes over two million pages in full image. Users can trace the evolution of feminism within a single country, as well as the impact of that country’s feminist movement on other countries and their movements. The Gerritsen Collection also provides immediate access to many primary sources from around the world that were previously available only in a limited number of rare book rooms.
UNB Libraries have upgraded to EBSCO’s fulltext database Business Source Ultimate which includes information about accounting, finance, banking, marketing, management and provides access to:
- 3,507 active full-text journals and magazines
- 2,112 active full-text peer-reviewed journals
- 1,401 active full-text peer-reviewed journals with no embargo
- 1,103 active full-text journals indexed in Web of Science or Scopus
In addition to accessing full-text journals, business students will have access to case studies, country economic reports, industry profiles, SWOT analyses, market research reports, product reviews, company profiles, as well as interviews with executives and analysts.
Business Source Ultimate also offers access to 67,000 videos from the Associated Press with footage from 1930 to the present and updated monthly. Through the Company View feature users receive detailed company information on finances, subsidiaries, products, employees and industry specifics for more than 1.1 million of the world’s largest public and private companies.
As part of the Archives of Sexuality & Gender series, this collection enables students, educators, and researchers to thoroughly explore and make new connections in subjects such as LGBTQ history and activism, cultural studies, psychology, sociology, health, political science, policy studies, human rights, gender studies, and more. The materials for this digital collection is guided by an advisory board consisting of leading scholars and librarians in sexuality and gender studies.
This unique fully-searchable collection brings together approximately 1.5 million pages of primary sources on social, political, health, and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world. Rare and unique content from newsletters, papers, government documents, manuscripts, pamphlets, and other types of primary sources sheds light on the gay rights movement, activism, the HIV/AIDS crisis, and more. Truly global in scope, LGBTQ History and Culture Since 1940 features historical documents published in more than 35 countries, with over 15 languages represented.
Please be reminded that UNB Libraries has made the decision to cancel our subscription to RefWorks in favour of supporting freely available citation management alternatives like Zotero and Mendeley. Our license with RefWorks will come to an end on August 31st of this year. Any RefWorks content that has not been transferred from RefWorks into a new software will be irretrievably lost on that date.
We encourage current RefWorks users to continue using citation management software, and recommend transitioning to one of the popular online tools: Zotero or Mendeley. For more information about how these tools compare to one another, and to RefWorks, see the Comparison of Citation Management Software Programs table on the library website.
UNB Libraries staff and resources are available to support you as you make the transition from RefWorks to a free online option. In addition to video support for Zotero and Mendeley, and individual in-person assistance, we will be hosting two workshops at the Harriet Irving Library on UNB Fredericton Campus.
Session 1 – June 28th at 2:00 PM (Learning Lab, Room 112)
Session 2 – July 20th at 10:00 AM (Learning Lab, Room 112)
A workshop will also be hosted on the Saint John Campus in the HWK Commons.
SJ Session – July 13th at 9:30 AM (Commons Room #G16)
We recognize the inconvenience that cancelling RefWorks will cause current users, and offer our apologies. If you require support for your content migration and none of the sessions above work with your schedule, please do not hesitate to contact us directly for individual support. In Fredericton, you can book an appointment with Richelle Witherspoon (phone: 453-4602 | email: firstname.lastname@example.org ); in Saint John, requests can be directed to Diane Buhay (phone: 648-5712 | email: email@example.com).
We are ready and willing to assist you as you make this transition.
