New Systemwide Electronic Resources (2021)

Thu, December 9, 2021 5:00 PM to Fri, January 21, 2022 12:15 PM

In the past few months, UC libraries acquired a group of new resources using monies from the University Provost and a fund designed to improve systemwide access to scholarly sources. Others were fully funded by the California Digital Library (CDL) or a specific campus.  See the CDL’s full news item for details

Resources were purchased in keeping with the following principles: support for remote instruction, advancement of diverse voices, and prioritization of one-time purchases versus ongoing subscriptions.

Some of these resources add more content to existing collections while others are new. For example, 2021 titles lists were purchased for some ebook collections. Access these resources through the UC Merced Library’s databases listing. Eventually all items will be cataloged and will also be available via UC Library Search.
