Dear Notre Dame Colleagues & Students:
As you know, we in the library continuously strive to meet the changing needs of faculty and students with regards to finding and acquiring material to support your research. We are committed to service excellence and continuous improvement in this rapidly changing environment.
Based on considerable campus requests, the Hesburgh Libraries now has a subscription to Scopus <https://eresources.library.nd.edu/databases/scopus>.
Scopus is a search engine that covers broad subjects such as science, engineering, social sciences, and medicine, including Medline. The Scopus database includes 60+ million records:
— 38+ million records back to 1996.
— 22+ million records pre-1996 (going back as far as 1823).
Scopus competes with Web of Science <https://eresources.library.nd.edu/databases/webofscience>, which many of you are already using. Both are extensive abstract and citation databases of peer-reviewed literature, with links to the full-text: journals, conference proceedings, and some books.
We have secured a three-year trial to Scopus. Please try it, and tell us what you think. As always, feel free to contact your subject librarian <http://resources.library.nd.edu/documents/librarians-guide.pdf> if you have any questions or need assistance.
