Nieuwe databanken: Artemis Literary Sources

De vakgroep Letterkunde besloot dit jaar met hulp van de Facultaire Bibliotheekcommissie (FBC) bijkomend te investeren in de toegang tot Artemis Literary Sources (Gale). Dit is een platform waarbij een reeks databanken worden ontsloten waarvan een aanzienlijk deel nieuwe titels zijn. Een ander deel betreft digitale versies van titels die daarvoor enkel in gedrukte vorm in de collectie aanwezig waren.


Artemis Literary Sources integreert literaire full-text werken samen met de bijbehorende metadata, subject indexering. Men kan zoeken op auteurs en hun werk, literaire bewegingen en genres. De bijzonder rijke database bevat zowel full-text literaire werken, wetenschappelijke artikels, literatuurrecensies, biografische informatie en overzichten uit alle Europese talen.


EXTRA DIENSTVERLENING

Extra tutorials, webinars en/of toelichtingen bij deze databanken, al dan niet gekoppeld aan een rondleiding of specifieke bibliotheekinstructie van een bepaalde collectie in de faculteitsbibliotheek LW zijn altijd mogelijk. Neem hiervoor contact op met de verantwoordelijke publiekswerking van de Faculteitsbibliotheek LW, Anne-Lise Van der Meulen.
