NISC Gender Studies Database

The Library now provides access to Gender Studies Database using the EBSCO platform that many Library users are already familiar with.  This database gives the TTU community broader access to the women's studies literature than we have had before, and the database is SFX enabled, so you can easily find  full text that the Library has access to in other databases. From the vender's web site:

Gender Studies Database produced by NISC, combines NISC's popular Women's Studies International and Men's Studies databases with the coverage of sexual diversity issues. GSD covers the full spectrum of gender-engaged scholarship inside and outside academia. Several thousand links to freely available and indexed full-text articles and documents on the Web are available. Source documents include professional journals, conference papers, books, book chapters, government reports, discussion and working papers, theses & dissertations and other sources. Several hundred links provide access to carefully selected and important websites. This database includes more than 696,750 records with coverage spanning from 1972 and earlier to present.

We also have recently made available SocINDEX with Full Text, a comprehensive index to the sociology literature.

Again, from the vendor:

SocINDEX with Full Text is the world's most comprehensive and highest quality sociology research database. The database features more than 1,910,000 records with subject headings from a 19,300 term sociological thesaurus designed by subject experts and expert lexicographers. This product also contains informative abstracts for more than 815 "core" coverage journals dating as far back as 1895. In addition, this file provides data mined from more than 630 "priority" coverage journals as well as from more than 2,840 "selective" coverage journals.

Further, extensive indexing for books/monographs, conference papers, and other non-periodical content sources is included. Searchable cited references are also provided. SocINDEX with Full Text offers comprehensive coverage of sociology, encompassing all sub-disciplines and closely related areas of study. These include abortion, criminology & criminal justice, demography, ethnic & racial studies, gender studies, marriage & family, political sociology, religion, rural & urban sociology, social development, social psychology, social structure, social work, socio-cultural anthropology, sociological history, sociological research, sociological theory, substance abuse & other addictions, violence and many others.
