One-Time Licensed Subscriptions 2007-2008 ...
Use 'em or We'll Lose 'em
Library is offering online access
to the following new subscriptions for the 2007-2008 academic
year. These are enhancements to the “click library” of
resources that are available to all Clark students, faculty, and
staff from a computer anywhere, 24/7.
These subscriptions have been paid with one-time funds,
so a continuing appropriation is needed to renew them for next year.
Usage statistics for these and other electronic resources are being
collected so that the most popular resources will be retained
if cuts need to be made later.
