New Resources Added to iCONN Friday, October 13, 2006

Posted by Sharon Brettschneider in updates.

Several new resources have been added recently to iCONN: Connecticut’s Research Engine

The Boston Globe
This important regional paper has been added to the other six newspapers available on iCONN. You may search for articles published in the Boston Globe back to 1980. Remember that iCONN also includes the Christian Science Monitor, the Hartford Courant, the Hartford Courant Historical (back to 1764), the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post.

History Reference Center
For high school students, history buffs, class projects and assignments, this is the first place to look. This database provides articles from magazines, journals, reference and non-fiction books; biographies, documents and speeches; maps and photographs. It also includes film and video clips of social, political and cultural historical events of the 20th Century from 1893 to 1985.

Science Reference Center
For high school students and up this is the place to start for science projects and research needs. This database includes articles from scientific reference books, magazines, journals, biographies and images. Topics covered include biology, chemistry, earth & space science, environmental science, health & medicine, physics, technology and wildlife.
