Welcome to the beginning of the 2009-2010 Academic Year!Last June, shortly before Library Director Joyce McLean retired, she arranged for the Library to lease a prize-winning new, general interest, research database.Academic OneFile: The vendor/producer (Gale-Cengage Learning) claims that its product provides “authoritative and comprehensive” coverage of the physical and social sciences, the arts and literature, theology, and medicine and technology. Full text (HTML and PDF) articles purportedly number in the millions!
One of our primary database vendors, H. W. Wilson, is now providing most of its databases with a built-in text-to-speech converter that converts articles into audio files. Please see the message below for a full description and to take a test drive of the functionality. Highlighted in yellow are the Wilson database to which the HNU Library subscribes. I hope this new feature is useful to you.
