Elsevier Freedom Collection
This collection of Elsevier e-journals expands the library’s access beyond to the Elsevier journals already subscribed by the library. By subscribing to the Freedom Collection, the library gains online access to almost all non-subscribed Elsevier journals at a significantly reduced rate, allowing the library to have online access to most current Elsevier journals from 1995 to present.


Films On Demand Master Academic Collection (annual subscription)
15,500 curriculum-focused streaming video films with unlimited access in class or off-site. Films cover a variety of subject areas, including humanities, social sciences, business, economics, health, medicine, science, mathematics, and newsreels.

Foundation Directory Online
Updated weekly, Foundation Directory Online provides the most current information on U.S. funders and their grants. The database lists over 100,000 U.S. foundations and corporate donors, over 2.4 million recent grants, and over half a million key decision makers.

JSTOR includes over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. Journals are always included from volume 1, issue 1. Support will go towards purchasing new collections and/or annual access fees.

Project Muse Journals
Project Muse Ebooks
Project MUSE is a leading provider of digital humanities and social science content for the scholarly community. Since 1995 the MUSE journal collections have supported a wide array of research needs at academic, public, special, and school libraries worldwide. MUSE is the trusted source of complete, full-text versions of scholarly journals from many of the world's leading university presses and scholarly societies, with over 120 publishers currently participating. UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE, launched in January 2012, offer top quality book-length scholarship, fully integrated with MUSE's scholarly journal content.

ProQuest Historical Newspapers
Full-text and full-image articles for significant newspapers dating back to the 18th Century. Every issue of each title includes the complete paper-cover-to-cover, with full-page and article images in easily downloadable PDF format. The library has acquired some newspapers but not all. Funds would be used to purchase new newspapers or cover the annual content fee of already purchased papers.
