Sharpen Your Searching Skills Using RLG Citation/Eureka Resources

A new Eureka interface for RLG Citation Resources will be introduced over spring break. These scholarly indexes include article and chapter level citations from thousands of journals, proceedings, and other collective publications. Included are:

  • Anthropological Index (Royal Anthropological Institute)
  • Anthropological Literature (from Harvard's Tozzer Library)
  • Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals
  • Bibliography of the History of Art
  • Chicano Database
  • FRANCIS
  • Handbook of Latin American Studies
  • History of Science, Technology, and Medicine
  • Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals
  • Index to Hispanic Legislation
  • Index to 19th-Century American Art Periodicals
  • Inside Information Plus, and
  • Russian Academy of Sciences Bibliographies

Sue Marsh, program officer for member programs and initiatives of the Research Libraries Group (RLG), will lead workshops for faculty and students on how to use these resources and the new interface most effectively. These free workshops will be held:

The Libraries acquired the Eureka databases through the generous support of the Reinvest in Rutgers program. Securing this resource is another step in fulfilling A Bridge To The Future: The Rutgers Digital Library Initiative, the Libraries long-range plan. Users may access Eureka/RLG Union Catalog (RLIN) from the front page of the Libraries website (http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu) through IRIS or through Other Library Catalogs.

The Rutgers University Libraries are an institutional member of the Research Libraries Group.
