The Northeastern University Library Is Currently Offering Trial Access to These Resources:


New Resources from Gale

Snell Library is currently offering trial access through June 6th 2024 to Gale’s Archives Unbound Public Housing, Racial Policies, and Civil Rights: The Intergroup Relations Branch of the Federal Public Housing Administration, 1936-1963.   

Public housing at the federal level was introduced in 1937 and was intended to provide public financing of low-cost housing in the form of publicly- managed and owned multifamily developments. This collection includes directives and memoranda related to the Public Housing Administration’s policies and procedures. Among the documents are civil rights correspondence, statements and policy about race, labor-based state activity records, local housing authorities’ policies on hiring minorities, court cases involving housing decisions, racially-restrictive covenants, and news clippings.

Snell Library is currently offering trial access through June 6th 2024 to Gale’s Power to the People: Counterculture, Social Movements, and the Alternative Press.  The resource showcases a range of ideas, initiatives, and social movements devoted to people-powered politics and organizing from the nineteenth through twenty-first centuries. Ranging beyond a few specific movements, the archive paints a broad picture of the counterculture and many disparate organizations that represent this moment in modern Western history. Although the archive concentrates mainly on the United States and the United Kingdom, it also covers events and topics from around the globe.

Inspec Analytics Plus (+)

Snell Library is currently offering trial access through June 2024 to Inspec Analytics Plus from the IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology). Inspec Analytics Plus is based on content (publications, citation counts, authors/researchers, institutions, publishers, etc.) included in the IET’s database, Inspec, which is searchable.  The Inspec database is one of the most definitive sources for discovering research in the fields of physics, electronics, computing and engineering.

As a researcher, it may be helpful to understand the attention your publications are receiving, to look at how your work compares to other researchers who could be competing for the same grants, or to identify potential collaborators or prolific researchers in your field. Inspec Analytics Plus analyzes data and creates visualizations about trends in research, publications, authors, institutions, funding agencies, etc.  The resource allows you to find answers to questions such as: What are the growing topics in my field? Which subjects should I include in my literature search? Where can I find collaborators in my field? Which are the most relevant journals and conferences to publish my work? How could my research contribute to the output of my institution?
