This upgrade makes searching for library resources much more streamlined and user friendly. All academic libraries in the state university system have switched to the same system. Here is more information about Primo and the enhanced features you will now have access to: And here is a learning object to introduce you to our new Primo Search interface created by our great instruction librarian Lisa Campbell: Of course, if you are used to searching a particular database like MLA or JSTOR -those will look the same. This only impacts what used to be OneSearch and the library catalog. New Resources Make sure to log in to the VPN before accessing any of these resources if you off -campus.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR 2021 202 2 3 In depth research articles on specific topics regarding European minority languages/linguistic minorities, including sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, and ethnolinguistic perspectives Multimedia elements (audios , videos, images) Primary sources , such as annotated texts, transcriptions, corpora, glossaries, field notes, etc. (Open Access as well as non Open Access) All articles in LME are enriched with metadata, allowing specific searches , e.g. for language na me , country /state/region , language family , keywords , references, and text in linguistic examples . The content is heavily interlinked , so as to enable users to quickly switch between overview articles, indepth research articles, and primary sources. Furthermore, LME articles link out to selected external online resources. Approximately 75% of the content are custom written for LME, 25% consist of seminal research from De Gruyter’s and De Gruyter Mouton’s archives, carefully selected by the main editors and area editors. Currently, LME contains articles on Basque , Croatian , Frisian , Hungarian, the Smi languages , and Turkish as minority languages (content about further languages is in preparation). New articles will be added annually (in two yearly updates). Adam Matthew Databases The list of databases we now have access to is very extensive and th is link will take you to the entire list.

This archive contains the most complete collection of the journal in the English language. Fully searchable, the database provides researchers from a variety of disciplines a unique and a valuable insight into the life of Soviet Muslims, journal’s obvious propagandistic slant and purpose notwithstanding. Za Vozvrashchenie na Rodinu Digital Archive This newspaper was published by the Soviet Repatriation Committee, which was established in 1955 and stayed active until 1958. The newspaper was principally aimed at Russian emigrants and was an important antiwestern propaganda outlet for the USSR. The main objective of the newspaper was the creation of a favorable image of the Soviet Union and the criticism of migr organizations in the postwar period and during the Cold War. The newspaper was published under the watchful eye of the KGB, and only the most loyal Soviet officials were allowed to work on this project.
