Research database news

CPI-Q, or Canadian Periodical Index
The electronic version of Canadian Periodical Index, CPI-Q indexes 1,200 Canadian periodicals (English and French) and provides full text of over 550 titles. It provides full text of regional newspapers, including the Chilliwack Progress and Abbotsford News.

The e-CPS is Canada’s most authoritative source for prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drug information, providing information on drug pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, indications, warnings, precautions, interactions, and more.

JSTOR Plant Science
JSTOR Plant Science provides the world’s largest database of plant specimens, with over 600,000 available today. Foundational reference works in plant science are also included, as well as over 20,000 paintings, photographs, drawings and other images.

Interface Changes
Database vendors have been busy this summer launching new interfaces and branding. Wiley Interscience is now Wiley Online Library. ScienceDirect (from Elsevier) has been integrated into a larger product known as SciVerse. Ebscohost, JSTOR and SpringerLink have also updated their platforms.
