New Resource - SciVerse Scopus
University Libraries Introduces SciVerse Scopus
University Libraries now provides access to Scopus on the SciVerse platform. Scopus is an abstract and citation database containing both peer-reviewed research literature and quality Web sources. The Scopus database contains more than 41 million records covering approximately 18,000 titles from 5,000 publishers worldwide. Coverage areas include science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities. Tools include Citation Tracker, Author Identifier, Affiliation Identifier and Journal Analyzer. Users familiar with the ISI Web of Science database - Arts & Humanities Citation Index, Science Citation Index Expanded, and Social Sciences Citation Index; should find the Scopus database a valuable replacement. Scopus is available from the Libraries' catalog at http://encore.lib.usm.edu/, and also on the databases list and individual subject guides on the Libraries' Web site at www.lib.usm.edu.
A live webinar for faculty will be offered Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2011, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in Cook Library Room 110. Please feel free to bring a Brown Bag lunch. To request information that will allow you to participate in the webinar from other locations, please use the Ask-a-Librarian form at www.lib.usm.edu/services/forms/askalib.html.
Mark your calendar for a Scopus Day Event for students, faculty, and staff, to be held on Wednesday, Feb. 23, 2011. More information will be announced as the date approaches.
