Stanford Libraries Blog
New database alert! Stanford Libraries has just started a subscription to RetroNews.fr, a full text database of the French periodical press. It covers the time period 1631-1950, with contents spanning from the first French newspaper, La Gazette, through World War II and the beginning of the Fourth Republic.
ACS in Focus ebooks are:
- Four to eight hour primers for beginning and seasoned scientists that need a quick start to a topic outside of their expertise.
- Topics include emerging and cross-disciplinary subjects not traditionally taught in an undergraduate chemistry curriculum.
- In an instructional setting, these works bridge the gap between textbooks and literature.
- Digital-only to take advantage of hyperlinks, pop-up glossary, videos, and animations.
- eReader is part of ACS Publications content suite and enables the reader to learn when it suits them, on or offline.
Access ACS in Focus (limited to current students, postdocs, faculty, and staff at Stanford).
