Back in October the Library had trial subscriptions to three different databases, all requested by Kirkwood faculty. We are pleased to announce that we have decided to subscribe to two of these, and both will be available beginning in January 2020.

Please welcome the newest additions to the Kirkwood Libraries Databases collection:

1. Film & Television Literature Index with Full Text

This database provides a collection of scholarly and popular articles on film and television topics. It strives to be comprehensive and balanced, and as the title suggests contains the full-text of indexed articles. Besides the obvious uses in film studies, this content could also be used by students writing research papers in any number of different courses where a film or series is used as source material. As a bonus, this database is contained in the familiar EBSCOhost interface.

2. Symptom Media: Films for Mental Health Education

This collection of short educational and training films contains mental health simulations, and includes assessment tools related to DSM 5 and ICD. We heard positive feedback on this content from faculty in psychology, human services, and nursing & allied health.

Thanks to all the faculty who recommended these databases and gave us feedback on their potential usefulness for our students. Check the library website in January to try them for yourself!
