The Library has added another fabulous resource for your research pleasure: American National Biography Online. Search for your favorite (no longer living) Americans. Search Bowdoin College to find our noteworthy alums, professors and friends. Search the Advanced Search by “Realms of Renown” (love it) to find notable Americans in art, government, sciences, religion, society and much more.
The Library has access to many electronic primary and secondary resources for research on women’s history. Here are some noteworthy sources:
In response to faculty and student feedback, we plan to make changes to the search box on the Library’s web site simultaneous with the launch of new CBBcat. The Catalogs search tab will become the first tab listed with options to search CBBCat (default), NExpress or MaineCat. OneSearch will move to the second tab position.

As part of the campus sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War, the George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives presented a blog as a daily reminder of what occurred 150 years ago. The posts derive from among the historical resources in Special Collections: a passage from a letter to a soldier; a soldier’s diary entry; a note of condolence; a daily surgeon’s morning report; an account of activities on the home front.
The year-long project has concluded but you can still view all of the posts.
For more information, please visit the Special Collections & Archives site.
The Library now provides access to Scopus — an enormous, interdisciplinary citation database in the sciences, social sciences and some humanities. What makes Scopus especially powerful is that the articles resulting from a search include links to other works that have cited those articles. Faculty can search their own publications and quickly see who has cited their work within the Scopus database. And there are many more features to enhance your research!
The Library is offering two training sessions to introduce you to Scopus: Tuesday, January 7, 10-10:45 OR Wednesday, January 15, 1:30-2:15 in the Electronic Classroom, H-L Library.
