TCD Library has recently purchased access to 51 titles from the Autrement Mêmes collection, published by L’Harmattan, Paris.

This is a collection directed by Professor Roger Little (Fellow Emeritus (French), TCD). According to Professor Little, these texts 'are difficult to find, often available only in specialised libraries, sometimes indeed extremely rare [...] all genres and all relevant periods are covered, mainly prose texts, however, from the 18th century to the latter part of French colonialism'.

Each title can be found catalogued individually in the Trinity Library system, Stella, and all 51 titles can be seen together on the database Autrement Mêmes.

For a full list of TCD Library's databases of journals and E-Books, current, new, and on trial, use the Databases and E-Books link on the Library homepage, found under the Stella search box.

New Resource: Loeb Classical Library

Loeb Classical Library [Harvard University Press. September 2015, access 'in perpetuity' purchased.]

The written treasures of the ancient Greek and Roman world. James Loeb founded the Loeb Classical Library in 1911, to make the work of classical authors accessible - regardless of knowledge of Greek or Latin.

Since 1989, a renewal plan founded on the publication of four or five new volumes a year has been in place. This plan includes titles new to the Loeb Classical Library (such as Chariton), completely new editions and translations (such as Euripides), and thoroughly revised editions (such as Homer).Greek and Latin texts are alongside English translations.

The authors in the Loeb Classical Library span fourteen centuries and every genre. Editors and translators are drawn from both sides of the Atlantic. New titles are added to the series, while existing titles are continually reprinted so that the complete Loeb Classical Library always remains in print.

NEW PLATFORM: Digital National Security Archive (China and the U.S.) is now available on ProQuest

DNSA: China and the United States: From Hostility to Engagement, 1960–1998
DNSA: U.S. Intelligence and China: Collection, Analysis and Covert Action
The above resources are now available on the ProQuest platform.

This means they can be cross-searched with the other Social Sciences group on ProQuest, or with all the TCD ProQuest databases.

The legacy (Chadwyck-Healey) version of DNSA will remain available until late summer, 2015, when the site will be shut down and redirects will be turned on. 

The new, direct links to the ProQuest versions have been added to the bibliographic records. The old link is also still available there and will be until the site closes down.

MyArchive Content:  Users who have created a MyArchive account will need to move any saved searches and documents they wish to retain over to their MyResearch account on the ProQuest platform. Instructions on how to accomplish this and/or how to create a MyResearch account can be found here
