Hot New Databases!

You probably haven’t noticed, but the temperatures this summer have been very hot.  To survive the heat wave, the official recommendation of the library is for all staff and students to sit indoors, enjoy the wonderful air-conditioning, and check out these new databases:

ThinkStock Images: This is an improvement on our former Getty Images subscription.  ThinkStock has more than 10 million images in multiple file sizes available to downloading for educational use.  Be sure to get the username and password for this resource by logging in to your student portal ( and clicking on the Library link at the top of the page.

VideoBlocks: A collection of royalty-free stock footage, motion backgrounds, production music, sound effects, and more available to download and use for educational purposes.  With over 50,000 clips available, there’s something for almost any project in here.

Vogue Archive: Take note, fashion students: you can now access the entire run of Vogue magazine (U.S. edition) from 1892 to present electronically.  This collection includes more than 400,000 high-resolution color page images.  Read an entire issue, or do a keyword search to find articles on a particular topic.

As always, these cool new resources can be accessed from any location, 24 hours a day via the student portal: — Library — Find by Resource — All Resources
