New Databases & Trials
The library has recently subscribed to the following two databases:
The Hispanic American Periodicals Index (HAPI) provides complete bibliographic citations to the contents of scholarly journals published around the world on Latin America and the Caribbean since 1970. Coverage includes everything from political, economic, and social issues to the arts and humanities.
One of the first statistic portals in the world to integrate data on over 80.000 topics from over 18.000 sources onto a single professional platform. Categorized into 21 market sectors, Statista provides direct access to quantitative data on media, business, finance, politics, and a wide variety of other areas of interest or markets. It also includes infographics, reports & dossiers, and forecasts.
And we currently have the following databases on trial:
Drawn from the combined catalogs of CD Sheet Music, Orchestral Musicians CD ROM Library, and Digital Sheet Music editions, LibraryMusicSource includes masterworks for piano, organ, classical guitar, strings, winds, voice, chorus and study scores as well as all the parts to over 600 orchestra masterworks, and an “Accompaniment Studio” — you have a pianist at your command to play the piano accompaniment part at all times. This feature makes practicing more productive and rewarding. [Trial ends April 19, 2015.]
