New databases

We have just added Proquest Platinum to our list of databases. PQ Platinum is an index with full-text, of articles published in over 2,000 journals and magazines, plus some newspapers. It is similar in terms of coverage to the Academic Search Premier database on the EBSCOhost platform. General broad coverage, not discipline specific. New York State is paying for it, through the NOVELNY consortium. Another new comer is Grolier Online, a small database composed of Encyclopedia Americana and 2 other small reference works.
