De Gruyter database trials : access until 1 July 2020

The University of Cambridge has access to four databases from De Gruyter until 1 July 2020:

Please tell us what you think of these databases using the online form.

 

Building Types Online

This database is a resource for the study and practice of architectural design. It is based on Birkhäuser’s high international standing in professional architecture books, on the knowledge of the authors and editors who are leading experts in their fields, as well as on the technical quality of the illustrations.

Deutsche Literatur des 18. Jahrhunderts Online

This online database contains first editions and complete historical editions of leading representatives of the Enlightenment such as Bürger, Gottsched, Herder, Kant, Lessing, Mendelssohn, Moritz, Nicolai, Wieland and many more, the writings of the “Göttinger Hainbund” and works of the Swiss Enlightenment. Most notably however, it also contains the writings of hundreds of authors who were less well-known or are nowadays all but forgotten, but who nevertheless contributed to the literary Enlightenment in Germany with their lyrical, dramatic and epic works.

Nietzsche Online

This database Nietzsche Online provides researchers and readers complete online access to the editions, interpretations and reference works on one of the most important philosophers. Users thus obtain access to a comprehensive database containing the research results of the last forty years.

WBIS World Biographical Index Online

This is the most comprehensive and extensive biographical database with information on persons, families and groups from all classes and professions, from all countries and regions of the earth, from the 4th millennium BC to the present.

You can also access these databases via the Databases A-Z.

Periodicals Archive Online (complete) : access until 31st May 2020

Complete access to Periodicals Archive Online (PAO) is available until 31st May 2020 in addition to our perpetual access of the JISC colecltions within PAO.

Please send any feedback you have about this archive via the online form.

Periodicals Archive Online is a major archive that makes the backfiles of scholarly periodicals in the arts, humanities and social sciences available electronically, providing access to the searchable full text of hundreds of titles. The database spans more than two centuries of content, 37 key subject areas, and multiple languages.

Providing access to the full text of a growing number of digitized periodicals that have been indexed in its sister database, Periodicals Index Online.

Currently, Periodicals Archive Online contains over 700 journals comprising more than 3 million articles and 15 million article pages. Periodicals Archive Online continues to add new titles, to give undergraduate and graduate students, university faculty and libraries access to a growing collection of key journals in the humanities and social sciences.

All of the journals in Periodicals Archive Online are of significant value to scholars. Whilst the majority of titles are peer-reviewed academic journals, a number of carefully selected publications are included that were not originally scholarly in nature but now represent essential research material.

Newspapers, journals composed entirely of pictorial matter and journals that are indexes (i.e. abstracts, current contents services or bibliographies) are not considered. Monograph series may be included, however.

International Journal of Islamic Architecture

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : International Journal of Islamic Architecture

From the Ingenta Connect website for the journal:

“The International Journal of Islamic Architecture (IJIA) is intended for those interested in urban design and planning, architecture, and landscape design in the historic Islamic world, encompassing the Middle East and parts of Africa and Asia, but also the more recent geographies of Islam in its global dimensions. The main emphasis is on detailed analysis of the practical, historical and theoretical aspects of architecture, with a focus on both design and its reception. The journal is also specifically interested in contemporary architecture and urban design in relation to social and cultural history, geography, politics, aesthetics, technology, and conservation. Spanning across cultures and disciplines, IJIA seeks to analyze and explain issues related to the built environment throughout the regions covered. The cross-cultural and interdisciplinary nature of this journal will significantly contribute to the knowledge in this field.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 6 (2017) to present.

Access International Journal of Islamic Architecture via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
