Important New Databases

The University Library is pleased to announce that we have added a series of new databases to better support the research needs of the Washington and Lee University community. Our new general subject database is Academic Search Complete. In addition to the excellent coverage and full-text articles provided by this database, we have also added an extensive range databases to provide greater coverage of business, technology, education, environmental studies, and more. Links to the new databases are provided below.
* Academic Search Complete
* Business Source Complete
* Computers & Applied Sciences Complete
* Education Research Complete
* Environment Complete
* Hospitality & Tourism Complete
* Humanities International Complete
* Legal Collection
* Newspaper Source Plus
* Psychology and Behavioral Sciences Collection
* Regional Business News

Unfortunately, these new resources don’t come without a cost. On July 1, the Washington and Lee University community will lose access to the Academic OneFile and Expanded Academic ASAP. While we regret the loss of these important resources, we are sure you will find the new products will offer you a greater variety of information from a larger range of sources.
