ABC-CLIO History Databases now part of EBSCOhost

The ABC-CLIO history databases, America History and Life and Historical Abstracts have now been integrated into the EBSCOhost search interface. These important historical research databases will continue to have all the features they had in the ABC-CLIO interface (including the ability to search bibliographic records by historical year or era), with added EBSCOhost functionality, including RSS feed, e-mail and export options.

Webcasts and powerpoints available via Conference Board

The library's subscription to The Conference Board Business Knowledge Research database now includes several new collections of multimedia tools:

Webcasts: recorded webcasts featuring business presentations that can be used in the classroom and as assignments by faculty. Our webcasts cover a broad range of topical business management and economic issues such as globalization, talent management, ethics and compliance, corporate governance, compensation and benefits, leadership, and corporate citizenship and sustainability.

PowerPoint Presentations: these slides, many of which are based on Conference Board reports, may be used to add value to your own presentations. Among their many benefits are:

  • Most are a visual representation of our full research reports
  • Opportunity to use slides in your own presentations
  • In addition to the slides, we offer a "notes view" that provides additional text and explanations to each slide.

Subject Guides have been updated

The old "Database Subject Guides" have been updated, reorganized and expanded and are now simply titled "Subject Guides." These new subject guides have clearer category labels and in addition to listing subject-relevant research databases, also include links to relevant dictionary and encyclopedia titles, E-Book collections, and select scholarly resources from the Web.


The new Subject Guides are linked from the library home page in the upper left or can be accessed directly using the web address: www.esc.edu/subjectguides.


Please go take a look and let us know what you think. The old Database Subject Guides can still be accessed using the link at the bottom of the new subject guide directory page.
