Wall Street Journal, Westlaw are among new electronic resources

The library now has access to two new databases for legal and news research.  Both combine a clean, easy-to-use interface with valuable research content.

Global Newsstream provides a searchable interface for global news from thousands of full-text newspapers, newswires, blogs, and news sites.  Included are many national and international papers, such as the New York Times and Washington Post, as well as two major, popular newspapers which are newly available to EIU patrons in online format: The Wall Street Journal and Chicago Defender.

Westlaw Campus Research: Law is a comprehensive database for US legal research.  It contains all state and federal legal cases, annotated statutes, regulations, administrative materials, and Federal Agency decisions/ opinions, as well as the KeyCite legal citator and more than 800 law reviews and journals.

These new electronic resources replace Lexis Nexis Academic/Nexis Uni.

For more information about these new databases, please contact your subject librarian or call the library reference desk at 581-6072.
