Eric Lease Morgan of the University of Notre Dame has created a list of important trends in information technology. When I discovered the list, I had just read that OCLC's Open Worldcat will soon include access to Baker & Taylor and that users will be able to buy books online without any further ado. Leases's third trend came to mind immediately: we are increasingly seeing commercial and non-commercial information be accessible side-by-side. Have a look at this interesting list of what's to come -- or what's already here.

Gender Studies Database is new, but not really entirely new. It's the combination of two NISC databases we've had for some time: Women's Studies International and Men's Studies Database. It's available on the familiar EBSCO platform, and should be an outstanding resource for anybody looking for information on a broad range of social issues related to gender.
Archival access is now enabled to the Washington Post from 1877-1988. An additional year will be added each year. This will complement our other historical newspaper offerings, including the New York Times and the London Times.
