USF Library recently started a trial period of two history databases: America, The History and Life Full Text and Historical Abstracts Full Text. Both databases will be available to all USF affiliates until September 1, 2011. If research in history is in your future, take a look at the new databases and let us know what you think!
America: The History and Life Full Text indexes 1,500 journals from 1955 with full text coverage of 230 academic journals and over 100 books. The database covers historical topics from prehistory to the present, focusing on the culture of the United States and Canada.
Historical Abstracts Full Text complements America: The History and Life by covering world history, excluding the U.S. and Canada, from the 15th century to the present. Historical Abstracts Full Text indexes over 2,500 journals dating back to 1955, with full text coverage of over 370 journals and 120 books.
To access any trial databases offered through USF Library, visit the A-Z Database list page on the USF Library website and click the Trials link at the top of the page or scroll all the way to the bottom of the A-Z list. Trial databases are listed apart from the ongoing databases to highlight their limited availability.
