  • Thanks for putting this up! I’ll share/promote it as I can, but sadly can’t make it myself!

    A Deceiving Label
    *Update!* As of August 30, this issue has been resolved! You should now only see results that read “SpringerLink Contemporary – CUNY”

    In our Journal Title Search, you might happen to come across the name of a database that is called “SpringerLINK Contemporary – CUNY Non-Subscribed.” You might think from this name that we do not have access to this resource, but that is not the case (sorry, we know it is confusing!). Fear not, you can click-through and should still find the full text. Please let us know if you find that this is not the case!

    Post-War Europe: Refugees, Exile and Resettlement, 1945-1950 This online archive delivers essential primary sources for the study and understanding of the challenges facing the European peoples in the aftermath of World War II. 

  • UPDATE: as of July 30, these issues should be repaired. Please do report bugs to us if you find them, but our Journal Title Search should now be updated.


    We recently went through an upgrade of the CUNY catalog that is shared by all CUNY libraries. Through this process, links to items in the earlier version of our catalog no longer work. One place where you might find a broken link is our Journal Title Search.

    Normally when you do a search here for a particular journal, you can find links to both electronic holdings, and, if we have a journal in print, to our “Graduate Center Print Holdings:”

    gc print issueBut because of our catalog link glitch, these links to our GC holdings are not working right now–sorry!

    Never fear, since this information is still up to date and available in the CUNY catalog. Right now it will just take opening up another tab or an doing an extra search directly in the catalog to find out what we have on our shelves, instead of linking directly from the Journal search.

    We will be working speedily to update these links (there are over 2100 that will need attention!). Bear with us for now and check with your librarian if you have questions about any changes you see in our catalog.

    New Databases
    As the end of the fiscal year looms, we have been working hard to  spending up every last dollar in our budgets. Here are the latest additions to our A-Z list (and you might notice that this list has had some upgrades!).
    Declassified Documents Reference System (DDRS) This resource makes it possible for researchers to easily and quickly access and review selected previously classified government documents online through the Declassified Documents Reference System. This digital collection fills a gap in post-World War II domestic and foreign policy studies.
    Ethnic NewsWatch: A History Whereas we once only had a subscription to Ethnic Newswatch (which covers articles from 1990 to the present), we now also have Ethnic NewsWatch: A History, or the complete Ethnic NewsWatch backfile to 1959. This includes full-text of American ethnic newspapers, magazines, and journals in English and Spanish. There is no new interface here, though–both searches happen at the same time.
    Index to Printed Music This resource indexes music from ancient Greek times to the present. It can be useful for finding individual pieces of music printed in standard scholarly editions, with hundreds of thousands of records of individual music works.
    International Index to Music Periodicals Full Text (IIMP) A music journal resource with more than 770,000 articles, plus detailed abstracts and full text from 1874 to current, covering the scholarly to the popular. It provides indexing and abstracts for more than 425 international music periodicals, plus full text for around 140 journals. IIMP Full Text covers a comprehensive range of subject areas in both scholarly and popular music journals ranging from International Journal of Music Education, Ethnomusicology, Jazz Education Journal and Musical Times to Rock and Rap Confidential and Rolling Stone. Articles examine the full spectrum of subjects and all aspects of music, including music education, performance, ethnomusicology, musical theatre, theory, popular music forms and composition.

    Sabin Americana, 1500–1926 Based on Joseph Sabin’s famed bibliography, Bibliotheca Americana – A Dictionary of Books Relating to America From its Discovery to the Present Time, Sabin Americana, 1500–1926 is an online collection of books, pamphlets, serials and other works about the Americas, from the time of their discovery to the early 1900s. Sabin is rich in original accounts of discovery and exploration, pioneering and westward expansion, the U.S. Civil War and other military actions, Native Americans, slavery and abolition, religious history and more. Covering a span of 400 years in North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean.
    SAGE Research Methods A research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and “Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
