Eresource update: Palgrave Connect

Last fiscal year, the USF Libraries moved from print to online only with the purchase of all ebook titles published in 2008 and 2009 by Palgrave McMillan with access through Palgrave Connect. This year the 2010 collection expands with three new collections—Education, Media and Culture, and Theatre and Performance.

Palgrave Connect is a medium sized collection of ebooks with approximately 925 titles in the 2008 and 2009 collections. The 2010 collection will add about 1000 new titles. In addition to the three new subject collections, this ebook collection offers access to diverse scholarly, professional and popular titles in: Business & Management, Economics & Finance, History, Language & Linguistics, Literature & Performing Arts, Political & International Studies, Religion & Philosophy, and Social & Cultural Studies.
