New resource: Periodicals Archive Online (Proquest)

Access to the Periodicals Archive Online collection (on the Proquest platform) has been enabled in Library OneSearch. Access is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The PAO can be cross-searched alongside any of the other databases on the Proquest platform, and records from the PAO can be added to a individual researcher’s RefWorks account without leaving the Proquest interface. The resource is described as follows:

Periodicals Archive Online contains the full-text of over 700 journals spanning the humanities and social sciences, across 37 key subject areas. Coverage is from volume 1 issue 1 of each journal and all issues are digitized from cover to cover. Whilst the majority of titles are peer-reviewed academic journals, a number of other selected publications are included that were not originally scholarly in nature but offer relevant research material. The archive is international in scope with the inclusion of more than 150 foreign-language titles.

Title-level access to all of the individual journals in the PAO will be enabled in SFX and Library OneSearch once Proquest and Ex Libris have made the datasets available in the SFX Knowledge Base.
