Resource Highlights

Guardian (1821-2003) and The Observer (1791-2003) newspapers

The Library has acquired backfiles of two British newspapers, The Guardian (1821-2003) and its sister paper, The Observer (1791-2003). These papers give readers online access to facts, firsthand accounts, and opinions of the day about the most significant political, business, sports, literary, and entertainment events from the past two centuries. The Guardian was first published in response to the Peterloo Massacre. Originally known as the Manchester Guardian, it was a Saturday-only paper until the newspaper stamp duty was repealed in 1855. The Observer, the world's oldest Sunday paper, was first published in 1791.

Sage Research Methods

SAGE Research Methods (SRM) is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SRM contains over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire "Little Green Book," and Little Blue Book" series, journal articles, and specially commissioned videos. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SRM focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.
