Wilson databases (OmniFile, Art Full Text, Art Index Retrospective) now on EBSCOhost platform

January 30, 2012 at 1:09 pm

As of Monday, January 30, all Wilson databases are now available exclusively on the EBSCOhost platform. All links to Art Full Text and Art Index Retrospective on the library’s website have been changed to point to these databases’ new home at EBSCOhost. Additionally, Academic Search Premier links will now direct users to an interface that simultaneously searches both Academic Search Premier and OmniFile Full Text Mega (all other OmniFile Full Text Mega links have been removed). The resource looks exactly like the Academic Search Premier you know and love, but will now search both of these databases simultaneously! A few differences to note: when you look at the Subject Terms and Publications sections, you’ll be prompted to select one of the two databases since each has its own listings of journal titles and subjects.

If you’d prefer to search each database individually, don’t worry – you still can! Simply select the “Choose databases” link and select only the one you’d like to search.

If you have any questions about these changes, please don’t hesitate to contact the library reference desk (x2544 or libref@beloit.edu) or Josh Hickman (x2246 or hickmanj@beloit.edu).
