New York State Database Changes: April 1, 2009

**NOTE  4/1/09: As of this morning, the databases have not switched over. Please be patient as we work out the kinks with NovelNY. I will post again when the databases are active. Thank you for your patience.

Most people don’t know that New York State provides free access to select databases for all New York citizens through a program called NovelNY. All you need to access this is a New York State drivers license, or, in the case of New York institutions, they can be linked through their web sites.   The Resnick Library has provided seamless access to these NovelNY databases for a few years now.

On April 1, 2009, the databases that make up NovelNY will change with the new fiscal year (unfortunately the government and academic fiscal years are not the same). This will create some difficulty for anyone using permanent links to material in databases that we will lose. However, we will gain access to two new databases in their stead. SUNY Delhi will lose access to some select Ebsco databases and some select Gale databases while gaining access to the Proquest Platnum database (comparable to Academic Search Premier) and Groiler Online (comparable to an online encyclopedia).  For further information, check out NovelNY’s FAQ page.

Below is the detailed list of databases:
Ebsco’s General Science Collection
Ebsco’s MasterFILE Select
Ebsco’s TOPICsearch
Ebsco’s Science Reference Center
Gale’s Informe
Gale’s Infotrack Junior
Gale’s Nursing & Allied Health Collection
Gale’s Virtual Reference Library (select titles)

Proquest Platinum (comparable to Academic Search Premier)
Groiler Online (Encyclopedia type site)

Wine Display @ Resnick Library

Satisfy Your Taste for More Wine Information!

Visit the Resnick Library Wine Exhibit, courtesy of the Hospitality Department and Generous Contributors.

When asked, “what kind of wine do you prefer?” do you:

a. wish you were 21
b. respond, “depends on who’s buying”
c. name a color (red, white, pink)
d. say, “I really don’t know”
e. ask, “what food is being served?”
f. other (bet there’s some good ones too)

Today’s consumers are becoming more knowledgeable and versatile in selecting wine for purchase. No longer is it proper wine etiquette to drink specific wines with given foods. Wine lovers and novices alike should drink the variety of wine they enjoy, when and with what they like. Educating one’s palette should be an enjoyable and lifelong pursuit.

Thanks to Instructor Don Reynolds, student George Udovich, Alumni Coordinator Aliza Rutledge, and supportive contributors Resnick Library is hosting an informative wine exhibit through March.

Those interested in pursuing more information are invited to search the Resnick Library catalog for the many informative books, articles, and DVDs on the subject. Additionally, the following course is offered on campus Fall Semester 2009:

HOSP 250 – Wine, Life and Society
