Library Today: New electronic resources listed

From UST Libraries

The libraries were very fortunate to be able to purchase a number of new electronic resources this past spring and summer. Many of these resources have been on our “wish list” for years.  Others are newly available databases, additions or revisions to existing resources.

We will share more detailed information on these helpful tools in coming announcements. In the meantime, you can link to any of them from the database pages of the recently updated library Web site.

Here is a list of the new resources (see a librarian if you need help in using them):
