Exciting database changes for July 1, 2006

Miami University Libraries, through its collaboration with OhioLINK, will greatly increase your access to periodical databases and full text periodical articles on July 1. Starting in July, 21 new databases will be available and eight current databases will have their contents significantly enhanced.

In order to accomplish these additions and enhancements, OhioLINK will be cancelling 14 current databases. A full list of the databases involved in these moves is available at I encourage you to especially view the table at the bottom of that document, which explains the cancellations and list the new or current databases which will replace the functions of those cancelled.

In this time of tight higher education and library budgets, OhioLINK has been able to work creatively with our vendors to achieve this feat and remain within budget. If you have any questions about the database changeover or its impact on your research, please do not hesitate to contact us.
