Falvey Provides Access to Religious Documents from the 16th and 17th Centuries

By Darren G. Poley

Are you looking for primary source materials of a religious or theological nature from the era of the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Revival? Printed texts on many subjects burst onto the scene in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Western Europe. A wide variety of controversial, exegetical, pastoral, social and political works from that time have been gathered into two online collections: The Digital Library of Classic Protestant Texts and The Digital Library of the Catholic Reformation.

They present full-text historical documents, and both include an array of document types, such as pamphlets, sermons, compendia, catechisms, biblical commentaries, and doctrinal treatises.  Between them there is a broad representation of various denominational traditions and religious orders.

Period editions are presented in their original languages of Latin, English, French, Italian, Spanish, and German. You can search by topic, author, biblical citation, or the original title of a work.

 


Darren G. Poley is Associate Director of Research Services and Scholarly Engagement, and Theology, Humanities, and Classical Studies Librarian at Falvey Memorial Library. You can access these collections from the Databases A-Z page on the Library Website.

A New Year and a New PubMed

By Sarah Hughes

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is replacing the long-standing version of PubMed with a newly redesigned and more intuitive version of the database. The new PubMed is now live and can be found on Falvey’s Databases A to Z page or by using this direct link. Click the blue banner at the top of the page to begin using the new PubMed.

The old version is now referred to as legacy PubMed and is still available for use. However, legacy PubMed will be officially phased out and replaced with the new PubMed at some point in spring 2020.

Some of the more significant changes include:

  • A modernized and cleaner looking search interface.
  • Enhanced mobile device connectivity. Viewing PubMed on small screens like a mobile device or tablet is greatly improved.
  • A more predictive search algorithm designed to be like searching in Google.
  • An on-screen cite feature which creates instant citations in several popular style formats, including AMA and APA.

To help frequent PubMed users adjust to these changes and new functionalities, the Nursing and Life Sciences librarian created documentation on using the New PubMed. PubMed”Cheat Sheets” can be found on the Nursing Subject Guide in tutorials under PubMed Basics and Advanced. More in-depth information can be found on the official PubMed User Guide.

Librarians are here to support you as you transition to the new PubMed. Please contact your subject librarian with any questions on adjusting to the enhanced interface.
