The Butler Libraries have updated their list of databases that have mobile-friendly access. Almost all of the EBSCO databases have mobile versions of their search pages, but many new databases have joined them.
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 (http://www.butler.edu/library/research/databases/) and click the 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 will be traveling to another country this summer, we recommend you check out Global Road Warrior, one of the Butler Libraries’ subscription databases.
You will find cultural, economic, and travel information on over 170 countries, including such handy information as visa requirements, how to tip, health advisories, cultural stereotypes, how to get Internet access, and advice for women traveling alone.
Use your Butler login information to access the database from off campus (and around the world).
Many of the libraries’ subscription databases have “mobile” versions that are scaled down to fit the screen size of most handheld devices. Just visit our Databases page like normal, but click on the “Mobile” icons located next to the database names to search those databases on your handheld device.

The Butler Libraries have just subscribed to a new database called Literary Criticism Online. This database indexes the Gale sets of Literary Criticism books (the large sets of brown or blue books in the Irwin Library Reference collection), including the following titles:
- Contemporary Literary Criticism (all volumes)
- Drama Criticism (all volumes)
- Children’s Literature Review (volumes 141+, from June 2009 forward)
For other areas of literature and literary criticism, we recommend the Literature Resource Center, also from Gale, which contain much of the content of all the Literary Criticism sets owned by the libraries.
