Information Just Wants to Be Free

Exciting news from ResourceShelf which announced yesterday the premier issue of SAGE Open, "the only broad-based open access journal featuring content from the social and behavioral sciences and the humanities."  

No cost peer-reviewed articles!  SAGE Open will feature scholarly articles from social scientists who require their articles to be freely available because of personal choice or because of university or government requirements.  Good news for researchers who are trying to find new articles in the social and behavioral sciences or humanities.

New Trier Library will certainly add what is certain to become a goldmine of articles to our database offerings. This is a resource which will hopefully promote collaborative and interdisciplinary research in the social sciences and humanities. Services include sharing of articles by email, alerts for corrections in publications, alerts for posted comments, and links to similar articles in the journal. Sign up for email alerts as each new article is published.

Citations may be sent to a "citation manger" which exports the citations to:

Our students may groan when they realize NoodleTools is not yet enabled to accept exported citations. Yet, we all know they need to learn the elements of citations in a variety of formats.
