Until Nov. 8, 2008 we will have available a trial of the Web of Science database from ISI.  The most well known feature of this resource is the “Citation Search” function – which enables you to find what published articles have cited a known work.  All disciplines are covered in the three parts – Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Science.

Access is only available from on-campus; and no username or password is needed to enter the trial.  Send your comments about this resource to:  Jenica Rogers (ph:  267-3328 or email: rogersjp@potsdam.edu
