New Databases Alert: Scopus and World Christian Database
Help the library spread the news about two great new additions to our collection of databases:

Scopus

Scopus is an authoritative index of peer-reviewed, scholarly literature. Unlike OneSearch, which consists of many different databases you can search at once, Scopus is a single database that provides an extremely customizable window into the scholarly conversation. Scopus also provides advanced tools for analyzing the significance of individual journals, articles, scholars and institutions. We've compiled some of our favorite Scopus functions here.

World Christian Database

The World Christian Database provides comprehensive statistics on world religions, Christian denominations, and people groups. Extremely detailed data are available on 9,000 Christian denominations, 13,000 ethnolinguistic peoples, as well as data on 5,000 cities, 3,000 provinces and 234 countries. Be sure to check out the modules for particularly interesting views into this extremely rich source of data.

We recently added a great new film database to our roster of databases: Film and Television Literature Index with Full Text is available on the familiar EBSCOhost platform and is fully indexed within OneSearch. Updated weekly, this database includes 160 full text academic journals, more than 160 e-books, and film reviews from Variety dating back to 1914.
