OCLC FirstSearch

February 6th, 2004 by Isaac Meadows in Databases

We again have access to OCLC FirstSearch which can be accessed via the Library’s homepage under Other Databases. This search does require an authorization code which is available via the campus intranet. The list of databases includes BasicBIOSIS, BioDigest, BusDateline, CWI (Contemporaty Women’s Issues), PapersFirst, WorldScope, and many others. Wingate University is charged 85 ¢ per search, so it goes without saying that this database should primarily be used after other retrieval possibilities have been exhausted.
