News from Tredway Library


Database increases full-text, peer-reviewed titles

EBSCO's Academic Search Elite, the library's largest aggregated periodicals database, was recently upgraded to the Premier version. This increased the number of full-text journals provided from 2,053 to 4,515. Of these, 3610 are peer-reviewed titles. For the past six years, Academic Search Elite has been provided by funding from the State of Illinois to all Illinois academic libraries without direct cost to the libraries. The recent upgrade is funded by the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries of Illinois (CARLI), a new organization formed by the merger of three long-standing Illinois academic library consortia. Carla Tracy is a member of the founding Board of Directors of CARLI.
