Faculty Research Databases
The following databases are designed for more in-depth research than our students generally need. However, faculty with interest in these areas may find them useful. Interlibrary loan can be used to obtain the full text of articles found in these indexes. Contact Richard DeFoe for details.
The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) is widely regarded as the accepted authority on the English language. It is an unsurpassed guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of 600,000 words- past and present- from across the English-speaking world.
ProQuest Digital Dissertations allows you online access to citations and abstracts for every title in the Dissertation Abstracts database. Titles published since 1997 are available in PDF digital format and have 24 page previews available.
The MathSciNet database contains signed reviews and bibliographic data from the first issue of Mathematical Reviews, a reviewing journal of international mathematics literature, in January 1940 to the present. Journals, conference proceedings, and books of mathematics research are covered. Items listed in the annual indexes of Mathematical Reviews but not given an individual review are also included.
Mental Measurements Yearbook via Ovid
Mental Measurements Yearbook, produced by the Buros Institute, contains full text information about and reviews of all English-language standardized tests covering educational skills, personality, vocational aptitude, psychology, and related areas as included in the printed Mental Measurements Yearbooks.
The Serials Directory
Publication information for magazines, journals, newspapers, newsletters, and other forms of serials.
These databases are available on campus or from Off-Campus with a Nunez ID that has been updated in the library.
