UST Libraries recently purchased a subscription to a private company research database called PrivCo:
What makes so this resources so unique? PrivCo provides users with hard to find private company information such as: financial data, funding sources, merger and acquisition activities, and patent and trademark filings. The companies covered in this database average around $50,000,000.00, in annual revenue.
Please contact Scott Odman, firstname.lastname@example.org, 651-962-4646 if you have any questions or feedback about this resource.
Beginning on Saturday, March 1st at 10 a.m. and lasting up to 16 hours (until March 2nd at 2 a.m.), journals published by Taylor & Francis as well as journals found on the BioOne and Annual Reviews databases will not be available. This will affect almost 400 of our online subscribed journals, but is due only to scheduled platform maintenance.
If you cannot access journal content during this window and it is from one of these three places, please try again after the scheduled maintenance window. Thank you for your patience!
Over the weekend, Saturday night into Sunday morning to be specific, journals published by Taylor & Francis will not be available. T&F is doing server maintenance. Um… ok. So what does this really mean? It means that when you’re in Summon or another resource and click GET IT to get an article, and if that article happens to come from the publisher Taylor & Francis, you will not get it. We have about 135 journals by them.
Calling all organic chemists – we’re trying out a new resource meant just for you!
e-EROS is the online version of the Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis, the “big red books” that many of you might be familiar with from your summer research projects. e-EROS combines the complete text of the Encyclopedia with the searching sophistication of a database.
In e-EROS, you can find detailed information on more than 4,500 reagents and catalysts. More than 200 new or updated articles are added every year in order to keep the database up-to-date. Searches can be done by reagent name, structure properties, reaction properties, and even structure images and drawings.
The trial is live until March 26, 2014.
We are interested in your comments!
Please contact Laura Hansen, email@example.com, 651-962-5011 with your thoughts on this database. Would it be useful in your personal or class research? Do you find it easier or more difficult to use than other sources?
UST Libraries will hold its annual Library Week Used Book Sale, Monday-Thursday, April 14-17. Shop this popular book sale from Noon to 6 p.m. each day, Monday through Thursday, in the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library. (Please note – we’ll be closed on Friday, April 18, because it is Good Friday.)
In preparation for the sale, we are inviting and gratefully accepting your donations of used books in these especially popular categories: fiction, art, self-help, literature, poetry, nonfiction, political science, history, children’s books and cookbooks. Are you getting a head start on spring cleaning? Or moving to a new office? If you find you have well-loved books that you no longer wish to keep, please consider donating them to the UST Libraries book sale.
You can drop off your books at the O’Shaughnessy-Frey circulation desk anytime the library is open beginning today through Thursday, April 10.
Please, no textbooks, books in rough shape, etc. For more information please call Julie Kimlinger at (651) 962-5014.
Summon is currently unavailable. Summon tech support is aware of the problem and are working on it, but it is indeed temporarily unavailable. If/when it does come back, I think it’s safe to expect some wobbly legs for a few hours.
Shelly Nordtorp-Madson and Chris Kachian
“noonartsound,” the Library’s popular lecture-concert series that blends musical performance and historical perspective, begins this spring semester on Tuesday, March 4 at noon. This time the subject is “Argentina: Tango in Images and Sound.”
Each session is held in the O’Shaughnessy Room of the O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library, and brings together the talents of Dr. Shelly Nordtorp-Madson, chief curator and member of the clinical faculty in the Department of Art History, and Dr. Chris Kachian, guitarist and professor of music. For 12 years, they have presented together, dealing with a variety of periods in art, sculpture, painting, costume history and more, and featuring guitar performances of period music spanning 400 years. Drs Kachian and Nordtorp-Madson are well-known for their unique style and humor, along with beautiful yet “unstuffy” presentations of their art.
Dates for the remainder of the series this spring are:
• April 1: “The Art and Music of the French Baroque Chambre”
• May 6: “Romantica: Spanish Art and Music of 1880-1920″
Bring your lunch if you wish, refreshments will be provided. For more information, call Julie at 651-962-5014.
