New and stopped database subscriptions in HAMK Library in 2020

15.01.2020 12:10

HAMK Library is now subscribing to some new databases for the use of both students and staff. You’ll soon find all these via HAMK Finna, too.

New database acquisitions in 2020:

  • Ebsco’s Business Source Elite will answer the expanded needs of business information. It contains over 500 full text journals and magazines.
  • Web Of Science is a comprehensive collection of reference databases (Science Citation Expanded®, Social Sciences Citation Index®, ja Arts & Humanities Citation Index™) for scientific information with access also to citation information via Journal and Highly Cited Data database (including Journal Citation Reports and Essential Science Indicators)
  • Springer Compact offers full text access to well over 2200 Springer’s scientific journals.
  • Finnish newspapers will continue to be available via ePress. We also introduce two more e-magazine services: eMagz and Flipster. As ePress newspapers, eMagz is available only in HAMK network so there is no remote access to it. Flipster magazines can be read also outside the HAMK network.

We have stopped the subscriptions to ProQuest Business Suite / ABI Inform, Ebsco Academic Search Elite and Vogue Archive. The main reason for this is poor usage statistics compared with the pricing of the products.

Please do notice that Vogue magazine is still available but now via Flipster.
