OhioLINK is pleased to announce another EJC milestone. The Electronic Journal Center (EJC) now contains more than 3 million scholarly research articles.
The EJC is one of the country's largest locally stored e-journal collections, providing access to more than 4,000 scholarly journals from 16 major publishers.
OhioLINK is pleased to announce Subject Cluster Searching, a new search option. You enter your search term and it searches several subject related databases at the same time. You also have the opportunity to create your own cluster of databases to search. Think of it as the "one-stop shopping" of database searching.
As an OhioLINK user, you have access to 90 or more online research databases. Unlike searching web directories or search engines like Yahoo and Google, it is not possible to search all of OhioLINK databases at one time. OhioLINK Subject Cluster Searching is a comparable alternative. If you have a paper due and you want to run a single search across several databases, Subject Cluster Searching is you.
Subject Cluster Searching can also help you decide which databases have the most information about your topic, so that you can conduct a more thorough search within that database. The results from a Subject Cluster Search will not include every relevant hit from a given database. If you are looking for comprehensive search results, you will still need to search the individual database. The Subject Cluster Search will give you the most current and/or the most relevant results, depending on the database.
