Providing Information And Public Outreach Across Three U.S. State Archaeology Offices During The Age Of Open Access, Samuel Thomas Ayers

Archaeology in the United States has been transformed into a mainstream, practical science over the past fifty years by Cultural Resource Management (CRM) and the federal regulations imposed by the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966.

Because we can combine data efficiently, we have created reports approaching new kinds of problems. We can be more responsive as a library to the needs of our academic departments. We think our liaison support service is especially interesting and can provide other librarians with new ideas about how to garner ...

Overview And Evaluation Of Selected General Business Databases, Yu Zhang, Di Su 2018 New York University

Overview And Evaluation Of Selected General Business Databases, Yu Zhang, Di Su

Publications and Research

Aiming at business librarians, this paper outlines and evaluates general business databases commonly used in academic libraries. The evaluation is based on the authors’ practical experience. It is by no means an exhaustive study because of the limited availability of databases at the authors’ institutions. Furthermore, due to the rapid change in electronic publishing business, some of the facts might have already been out-of-date at the time this paper is published, e.g., user interfaces. Nevertheless, the authors hope that this paper may help librarians make decisions when dealing with business database subscriptions.
