Articles, articles everywhere!

September 25, 2008

Have you ever been looking for an article in a journal/magazine/newspaper and had no idea what database it was in??  I know I have.  The Library’s website offers one of its coolest features – the Journal Locator – to any and all who wish to take advantage.  This option allows you to plug in the title of the journal, magazine, or newspaper and discover exactly which database and for what timeframe that title may be accessed, as well as the print copies available in the Library.  Once you have the list of databases, they are hotlinked so you can just click on the database title and it will drill into the magazine record.  Once there, you can browse by issue or search within the publication.  I know you’re thinking, no way!, but this is a great value to be found on the Library’s website.  If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.

Fashion Week

September 19, 2008

September is a hot month for Fashion.  “Fashion Weeks” are hosted in New York (9/5/08-9/12/08), London (9/14/08-9/19/08), Milan (9/20/08-9/28/08) culminating in Paris (9/28/08-10/5/08).  These events were created for store buyers, magazine editors, and the media.  They have since been targeted by celebrities as the place to be seen. 

Check out the display in the Library highlighting the resources targeting Fashion/Design/Couture.
