1 News, company information and more new material now on ProQuest

We've just added the following new ProQuest databases:

  • ANZ, Canadian and US Newsstands, which extend RMIT's access to newspapers online.
  • Hoovers Company Profiles, with content on more than 40 000 public and non-public companies and 225 000 key executives.
  • Snapshots of market data for a broad range of industries and regions.
  • OxResearch for succinct analytical articles covering world and regional economic and political developments of major significance.

2 Theatre in Video available, and American History in Video on trial

Theatre in Video is a database with more than 250 of the world's most significant plays, and around 100 video documentaries. It includes works of Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett, Arthur Miller, Eugene O'Neill, Sean O'Casey, Sophocles, Heinrich von Kleist, Tennessee Williams, Anton Chekov, Jean Cocteau, Voltaire, and Henrik Ibsen. Browse by genre, artist, time period and place, and select a scene or the whole play to be streamed to your desktop. You can compare different productions and create custom clips and class-specific playlists. You can also bookmark specific scenes at permanent, per second URLs and include them in papers or course resources. More information: www.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=cglif28k48gw1

We're also trialling American History in Video. Tell us what you think! Further information: www.rmit.edu.au/browse;ID=aq4nlg2tm2knz
