The Hatfield Library is happy to introduce three new databases that are of primary interest to the Atkinson Graduate School of Management. All are full-text databases and are included in the library’s A-to-Z database list. Business & Company Resource Center is a great starting point when you are looking for company specific information, since it accesses over a dozen corporate & industry directories. You can search for company information by several different methods, and it also contains Market shares and Rankings within an industry. Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Collection focuses on both the historical and current state of affairs in the hospitality and tourism field, while also allowing for focused study of specialized aspects of the industry – including cultural aspects of travel, leisure activities, and economic aspects of tourism. Small Business Resource Center has information on how to start, finance or manage your small business. Resources include sample business plans, how to guides, articles and websites.
The Hatfield Library has added a new database, Local Market Audience Analyst.
The database is a next generation consumer market research tool that delivers sophisticated demographic, segmentation, and targeting data for media planners and consumer marketers.
The Hatfield Library has a new preferred search alerting service, which can allow you to store a search within your library account.
Some of the benefits:
1. Receive e-mail alerts of new items on a topic that interests you.
2. Keep track of a complex search that you might want to use again.
3. Store a search that you will run on a regular basis.

The Hatfield Library has switched vendors for two databases: Biosis Previews (1990-present) and PubMed (1950-present).
You will notice a difference in the interface — they are more intuitive and have more consistent results than the previous interface. Biosis Previews & PubMed are both geared toward the life sciences.
The Hatfield Library has added two new databases:
1. ORIL–Oxford Reports on International Law
In addition to its expansive coverage and regular updates, Oxford Reports on International Law offers users enhanced case reports which contain high quality commentary and analysis. Case reports include headnotes, summary of case facts and judicial holdings, full text of the opinion of the courts, analytical commentary from scholarly experts, accurate translations of non-English judgments, and a list of cases and instruments cited.
2. Encyclopedia of Public International Law
Written by over 650 scholars and practitioners from around the world and edited by a team from the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law. This online resource includes more than 700 new topics, not covered in the previous print edition, and is updated quarterly.
Both are listed on the Databases A-Z list and are provided through Willamette’s J.W. Long Law Library.
The Hatfield Library now has access to GreenFILE, a freely accessible research database focusing on the relationship between human beings and the environment, with well-researched but accessible information on topics ranging from global warming to recycling to alternate fuel sources and beyond.
Comprised of scholarly and general interest titles, as well as government documents and reports, GreenFILE offers a unique perspective on the positive and negative ways humans affect the ecology. Drawing on the connection between the environment and disciplines such as agriculture, education, law, health and technology, GreenFILE will serve as an informative resource for anyone concerned about the issues facing our planet.
The database can be also found in the library’s A-Z list.
The Hatfield Library has added the Education Full Text database from the H. W. Wilson Company to its list of full text databases.
In addition to delivering the full text for hundreds of academic journals in the field of education, going back as far as 1983, Education Full Text offers a richer search experience from its predecessor, Education Index, because of the addition of abstracts that are now searchable. Education Full Text is the ideal database to turn to for research topics on any aspect of education, ranging from nursery schools to colleges.
The Hatfield Library Catalog was updated over the break with some new features many users will come to find useful.
Not only is a new relevance ranking used for keyword searching, but now individual records will often contain book cover images provided by Amazon and links out to Amazon and Google Books.
These services offer additional information such as descriptions, reviews, pricing, and some or all of the book’s content. Information varies by publication and service.
For questions about these or other resources, contact a librarian.
Please be advised the Hatfield Library has scheduled maintenance planned for the Library servers from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Thursday, November 22.
University Library electronic services will be unavailable for duration of maintenance. If you experience problems following the maintenance period, contact library systems staff.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The Hatfield Library has added the Hoovers database, which is designed to provide insight into companies & executives. Hoovers is produced by a division of Dun & Bradstreet, the well-known business service provider. Hoovers allows you to:
– Access comprehensive company database
– Review key executive profiles
– Analyze complete industry coverage
– Build lists based on companies or executives
– View detailed company fact sheets with financials, executives, and more
– Get breaking news and lists of IPOs
– Find companies using stock and financial performance parameters
In addition to being of interest to students in Business, Management, and Economics, it can also be a helpful resource for people who are job hunting. Hatfield Library’s subscription offers a higher level of service from Hoovers than is offered freely to the public at large.
