Trial access to Yomiuri (a Japanese newspaper)

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

In collaboration with the libraries of Bryn Mawr, Haverford, Swarthmore Colleges and others, Middlebury College has trial access for one month to Yomiuri Shinbum, a.k.a. Yomiuri Shimbun (読売新聞), one of several major Japanese newspapers, from the inaugural issue in 1874 to the present, along with the English edition, the Daily Yomiuri (Sept. 1989- to the present).

All full text articles of Yomiuri Shinbun from 1874 to 1989 are available with the exception of some articles with copyright restrictions dating from 1986 to present.

Visit the Japanese edition of Yomiuri online, the Daily Yomiuri English edition and then see what Wikipedia has to say about Yomiuri.

A new tool for research in geography, geosciences, and environmental studies

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Through the end of the month, Middlebury has access to a new website called Engineering Village that combines two research databases, GeoRef and GEOBASE, covering geology, geochemistry, geophysics, geomechanics, human and physical geography, environmental sciences, oceanography, alternative energy sources, pollution, waste management and conservation.

What’s so new about Engineering Village? Well, two things really: it brings together two databases (GeoRef and GEOBASE) that we normally search separately and it includes a Google Maps search. So, a search for “fluvial geomorphology Vermont” returns 84 articles, geo-referenced for you:
