Some of the additions include:

  • American Chemical Society

  • Web of Science (Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science Citation Indexes)

Use any of our database lists ( and click the mobile icon Mobile Icon next to the database name. Most of these links go directly to the mobile version of the database, but several take you to the page that has links to download the apps for that database.

If you are trying to use a library database and getting a red screen with an error saying:

The site’s security certificate has expired!

we are aware of the problem. It is perfectly safe to click “Proceed Anyway” and use the databases. We are working to get the security certificate renewed so this error disappears.

NOTE: This problem has been fixed!
