New Resource – International Business Online ( Alexander Street Press)

International Business Online – http://search.alexanderstreet.com/ibus will be shortly added to our Library resources collection. I found the best way of searching the archive was to go the top left-hand corner of the screen and select ‘search all content’ then select one of the subjects, as well as search all content > browse disciplines. This database not only supports International Business, but contains many other disciples too, for an extended trial period until 30th April, including:

  • Art & Design
  • Diversity
  • Asian Studies
  • Black Studies
  • Disability Studies
  • LGBT Studies
  • Women’s Studies
  • Health Sciences
  • History
  • Literature & Language
  • Music & Performing Arts
  • Personal Interest
  • Psychology & Counseling
  • Science & Engineering
  • Social Sciences

Do you know that we have recently subscribed to Oxford University Press Journals (OUP) which is available through the Library homepage (library.lincoln.ac.uk > resources > databases > O > Oxford University Press Journals)? This presents a wonderful opportunity to browse the tabs Journals A-Z, and the Arts & Humanities, Law, Medicine & Health, Science & Mathematics, and most importantly for business, Social Sciences. The OUP is an integral part of Oxford University, which this marketing video smartly conveys:

Also, I could not resist from exploring World Literature and Roger Luckhurst from Birkbeck College discussing the readability of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which he surmises is one of the most entertaining novels ever written. What will you find in OUP?

There’s also a fascinating OUP blog piece entitled ‘A timeline of academic publishing at Oxford University Press‘ that illustrates the history of printing the written word in England from 1450. For the 42 journals we have access to as part of our subscription please select this link: http://atoz.ebsco.com/Titles/Provider/1710?lang=en&lang.menu=en&lang.subject=en&providerId=494&providerName=Oxford%20University%20Press&resourceType=all&resourceTypeName=allTitles
