Australasian Digital Theses

This resource has been discontinued.  Trove will provide access to most theses and dissertations from this region.

Center for Research Libraries Online Catalog — Dissertations

Searchable online index of foreign (non-U.S.) doctoral dissertations held by the Center for Research Libraries.

Trove

Trove is a new discovery experience focused on Australia and Australians. Trove provides integrated access to millions of items from a range of the National Library’s collaborative services and from elsewhere. Metadata (information about items) is pooled from Australian sources including: The Australian National Bibliographic Database – containing location information from thousands of Australian libraries, The Picture Australia program, The Australian Research Online program, The Music Australia program, The Register of Australian Archives and Manuscripts, and The People Australia program, and some overseas sources.

The following resources are no longer available from the OCLC FirstSearch service.  We have moved PAIS to ProQuest and the other 4 to EBSCOhost.

 

Over the years, ProQuest has acquired the companies, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA) and Chadwyck Healey.  For the past year, ProQuest has been developing a new search interface which they want to apply to all of their databases as well as those acquired from CSA and Chadwyck Healey.  The migration to the new interface has been in place for several months, and the Baylor University Libraries have now switched to the new ProQuest interface for the following resources:

As ProQuest continues to migrate their family of resources into the new interface, we will make the appropriate changes.

OmniFile Full Text Select

This resource is being considered as a replacement for the FirstSearch database, WilsonSelect. The content indexed in this resource represents the full-text only articles index in 11 Wilson databases (Applied Science & Technology; Art Index; Biological & Agricultural Index; Education Index; General Science Index; Humanities Index; Index to Legal Periodicals; Library Literature & Information Science Index; Readers’ Guide; Social Sciences Index, and Wilson Business Index). This resource is convenient for users with inquiries in areas that cross disciplines, such as ethnic studies, women’s studies, history, etc.

EBSCOhost eBook Collection (Preview)

Last year, the NetLibrary e-book service was obtained by EBSCOhost. EBSCOhost is in the process of moving the NetLibrary books from the NetLibrary platform, into the EBSCOhost platform, and adding more functionality through that platform. This is preview access to this new NetLibrary interface.

Some notes about the use of this preview:

  • Any changes to Baylor’s current netLibrary collection will not be reflected within the preview environment.
  • To make use of the personalization options available, you have to create a new and unique account in the EBSCOhost eBook Collection during the preview period. Information stored, including username, password and eBook information, will be deleted once the preview ends (around June 15, 2011).
  • Activity in this preview environment will not impact/affect our current live NetLibrary account, e.g., checkouts in the preview environment will not count as checkouts in the live NetLibrary environment.

HathiTrust Digital Library

As a digital repository for the nation’s great research libraries, HathiTrust brings together the immense collections of partner institutions. It was initially conceived as a collaboration of the thirteen universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, the University of California system, and the University of Virginia to establish a repository for those universities to archive and share their digitized collections, and quickly expanded to include additional partners with fast growing treasure of digitized collections.

Baylor University joined the HathiTrust in fall 2010.  Consequently, those faculty, students, and staff with active Bear IDs will be able to authenticate their access in HathiTrust and download the full text of public domain materials and create permanent collections of resources of interest to them.  For detailed information on HathiTrust, see the HathiTrust LibGuide.
