Global Health Archive and Business Book Summaries Available on EBSCOhost

Oct 10, 2008

Business Book Summaries (BBS), a database providing summaries of business books, is now available on the EBSCOhost platform. Business Book Summaries includes a library of more than 750 book summaries with more than 60 new titles added annually. Only the top one percent of all business books published each year are selected for summarization in Business Book Summaries. The summaries are organized into 18 categories. BBS summaries focus on the author’s learning objectives, and each summary includes the Key Concepts found in the book, as well as an overview of the book’s contents and tips for optimizing the use of the book as a professional development resource. The linking capabilities inherent in EBSCOhost let academic and public libraries link from results in Business Book Summaries to their online catalogs so that users are also able to request the book itself.

Global Health Archive
, produced by CABI, is now accessible on EBSCOhost. Global Health Archive includes more than 800,000 records and provides information on public health, tropical and communicable diseases, nutrition, helminthology, entomology, and mycology. The archive is comprised of six printed abstract journals produced between 1910 and 1972. Global Health Archive is a companion to Global Health. Together they provide a global picture of international public health research both past and present.
