UC Access to New Electronic Resources 6/2/11

All UC campuses now have access to these electronic resources as part of CDL and campus one-time purchases (some campuses may have already had access via local subscriptions):

Blackwell Companion to Phonology (All campuses; on the Wiley-Blackwell platform)

The Blackwell Companion to Phonology is a major reference work drawing together 124 new contributions from leading scholars in the field. Led by a team of renowned international scholars, the Companion represents a diverse range of approaches and methodologies to key phenomena in phonological research. In contrast to other handbooks and reference works currently available for phonology, these volumes focus on phenomena and case studies that highlight past and ongoing debates in the field. Interdisciplinary connections, such as those with the social and computational sciences, are covered, as well as statistical and experimental techniques. The Companion will be a touchstone for future phonological theorists, giving an overview of data and insights which any theory of phonology should be able to cover.

Comprehensive Physiology (All campuses; on the Wiley platform)

The most wide-ranging and authoritative collection of review content ever assembled in the physiological sciences. Comprehensive Physiology includes the landmark series Handbook of Physiology, available for the first time in an online format. This seminal series will be continually updated and expanded to capture the current science of physiology for a twenty-first-century readership.

Springer Protocols (1980-2011) (All campuses; on the Springer platform) (Cataloged at the title level)

SpringerProtocols is the largest subscription-based electronic database of reproducible laboratory protocols in the Life and Biomedical Sciences. Compiling protocols from Humana’s successful book series Methods in Molecular Biology, Methods in Molecular Medicine, Methods in Biotechnology, Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Neuromethods, as well as from a vast number of Laboratory Handbooks, such as The Biomethods Handbook, The Proteomics Handbook, and the Springer Laboratory Manuals, SpringerProtocols offers researchers access to nearly thirty years worth of time tested, easily reproducible, step-by-step protocols for immediate use in their lab. Written by renowned experts in the field with an emphasis on both comprehensiveness and ease of use, each protocol is organized in an easily reproducible recipe style, and offering helpful tricks of the trade in an invaluable “notes” section, SpringerProtocols is an invaluable resource for the modern research laboratory. All SpringerProtocols are written by experts in the field identified and reviewed by distinguished editors in their specific subject areas. Prior to publication each protocol is reviewed for clarity, accuracy, and consistency by the subject editor, a member of our prestigious editorial board, and Springer’s in-house editorial staff.

CDL purchased the SpringerProtocols Archive (1980-2010) and 2011 content for all ten campuses.  Seven campuses will continue their subscription in 2012 (Berkeley, Davis, Los Angeles, Merced, Irvine, San Diego, and San Francisco).
