A Practical Guide to Electronic Resources in the Humanities Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From full-text article databases to digitized collections of primary source materials, newly-emerging electronic resources have radically impacted how research in the humanities is conducted and discovered. This easy-to-use annotated guide will aid librarians, students, and scholars in selecting only the most high-quality, up-to-date electronic resources for the humanities. It covers online databases, indexes, archives, and many other critical tools in all major humanities disciplines, including philosophy, religion, languages and literature, and performing and visual arts. Succinct overviews of key emerging trends in electronic resources accompany each chapter.

Book News Annotation:

This guide will help students, educators, and librarians locate key subject-specific online resources in the performing arts, art and architecture, languages and literature, philosophy, and religion. Entries are organized so that readers can search for different forms or genres of information, such as scholarly articles, primary source material, or statistical data. An introduction summarizes the online research process and discusses issues related to open access in electronic journals and repositories. The rest of the book contains annotated entries on academic, professional, and government resources such as abstracting and indexing databases, web directories and information portals, websites of professional societies and organizations, archival collections of primary texts, and databases of audio, video, and images. Individual entries contain notes on the scope and content of the resource. The name of each resource's creator and home institution are also provided, to aid in tracking down resources that may have moved or changed domain names. Dubnjakovic and Tomlin are librarians at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Distributed in the North America by Neal-Schuman. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
