Test Driving New Databases

Most of us are acquainted with Academic Search Premier and Business Source Premier, two of the Library’s most heavily used databases. Well, meet their souped-up versions, Academic Search Complete(ASC) and Business Source Complete(BSC). ASC boasts coverage of over 10,000 journals including 6100 full text titles of which 5100 are peer-reviewed. BSC contains arcane information cloaked in such terms as SWOT analysis and Black Book reports, and like its smaller brother, it features the full text of Harvard Business Review back to 1922. We have until the end of December to try them out. So why don’t you take them out for a spin and see how they handle? As always, comments are welcome.
