Frequent users of our database access will have noticed some changes. Some of these are because of changes within the providers (Wilson Web and Ebscohost have merged) and some we’ve made in an effort to improve service to students by offering different databases. Among these changes we’ve decided to drop Lexis-Nexis. We do offer similar information in other databases.

  • If you are looking for the business profiles, similar business profiles can be found on the EBSCO database under Business Source Elite. Select just that database on the Choose Databases page and then click on Company Profiles once it appears in the top bar.
  • If you are looking for similar newspaper coverage, especially the full text New York Times, check out our new database  Newstand. Additional newspaper sources can be found in Ebsco under Newspaper Source (including the full text of the Cedar Rapids Gazette aka The Gazette, ask for help if you have trouble finding it).
