Art Source™. EBSCO. Jan 2013. ebscohost.com. UG GP
Actually covering architecture in addition to art, this database will be aimed toward art scholars, artists, designers, students, and general researchers. As one of EBSCO’s “source” databases, it combines resources previously available from H.W. Wilson—in this case its Art Index, Abstracts, Full Text, and Retrospective databases—and from EBSCO, namely its Art and Architecture Complete. The result will include the full text of 600 journals and more than 220 books, indexing and abstracting for more than 18,000 art dissertations, a whopping 63,000 images, and podcasts from leading museums. As well as expected subject coverage such as painting and sculpture, the database offers information on such topics as industrial and landscape design and video art.

Gale Genealogy Connect. Gale. Aug. 2012. gale.cengage.com/WorldScholar. Price TBD; varies by archive and institution size. GA
Americans, as Jean Fisher and Robert R. Pankl described in their recent LJ article “A Focus on the Family,” are turning more and more toward libraries in a search for their roots. Resources such as Ancestry Library Edition, Afrigeneas, and, of course, the National Archives are heavily used in the puzzle that is genealogy, but this new product complements those records with a solid base of family research publications and advice. The database offers content bundles—its “Getting Started” collection includes, for example, recent titles such as the “Genealogy at a Glance” books that focus on various ethnicities and the intriguingly titled Collecting Dead Relatives. “Essentials,” for those digging a little further into the hobby, offers material such as bibliographies of the Library of Congress’s genealogical resources. The backbone of the database, though, is materials focusing on Americans of particular origins, bundles called “Immigration,” “Colonial and Revolutionary,” “Native American,” and even “Royal and Noble.”
