New resource: Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive (Proquest)

Access is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive can be cross-searched alongside any of the other databases on the Proquest platform, and records from the archive can be added to a individual researcher’s RefWorks account without leaving the Proquest interface. The resource is described as follows:

The Entertainment Industry Magazine Archive contains primary sources for studying the history of the film and entertainment industries, from the era of vaudeville and silent movies through to 2000. US and UK trade magazines covering film, music, broadcasting and theater are included, together with film fan magazines and music press titles. Magazines have been scanned cover-to-cover in high-resolution color, with all articles, covers, advertisements and reviews indexed.

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 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.

Verdict Reports (MarketLine): access removed from Library OneSearch

The entry for Verdict Reports (via the MarketLine platform) has once again been removed from Library OneSearch following the conclusion of the current access period to the resource. A future update will follow as and when LLR’s future subscription arrangements with the Verdict service are confirmed.

New resource: The Vogue Archive

Access to The Vogue Archive is now available in Library OneSearch and eSearch. Access is direct on-campus and by university username and password from off-campus. The resource is described as follows:

A complete searchable archive of American Vogue, from the first issue in 1892 to the current month, reproduced in high-resolution color page images. Every page, advertisement, cover and fold-out has been included, with rich indexing enabling you to find images by garment type, designer and brand names. The Vogue Archive preserves the work of the world’s greatest fashion designers, stylists and photographers and is a unique record of American and international fashion, culture and society from the dawn of the modern era to the present day.
