New Database: OmniFile Full Text

Some changes are coming in the next year to one of our longtime research databases. OCLC's FirstSearch database will not be providing access to any databases that they do not own beginning next summer (June 2011). One of the databases that we will be losing at that time is the WilsonSelectPlus full text database. In preparation for this loss, we have obtained a one year trial to its replacement through H.W. Wilson. We will have a year to try out this database on Wilson's platform -- for free!

Here is what is included in the OmniFile Full Text database:

OmniFile Full Text is a multidisciplinary, 100% full-text database providing full text articles from more than 1,600 publications, with their accompanying indexing and abstracts, from the following Wilson Periodical databases:

Art Full Text
Applied Science & Technology Full Text
Biological & Agricultural Index
Education Full Text
General Science Full Text
Humanities Full Text
Index to Legal Periodicals & Books
Library Literature & Information Science Full Text
Readers' Guide Full Text
Social Sciences Full Text
Wilson Business Full Text

Go to the Library website and try out OmniFile Full Text and let us know what you think!
