Change in access for History of Science, technology and medicine

History of science, technology and medicine is migrating from OCLC Firstsearch to the Ebscohost platform.  Record changing is in process.

OLD:
http://firstsearch.oclc.org/fsip?autho=100151638&dbname=Histscitechmed&done=referer

NEW:
http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=htm

We will lose access via the Firstsearch platform after Thursday February 28.

New content: Oxford bibliographies

Oxford Bibliographies provide a scholarly, annotated listing of the most important and significant sources on a subject. Coverage usually includes books, journal articles, reference sources and web sites. The UW Libraries currently subscribes to the following subject modules: Atlantic History, Buddhism, Classics, Communication, Hinduism, Linguistics, Medieval Studies & Political Science.
The collection is available at: http://www.oxfordbibliographies.com/ and each module also has its own cataloging record and url.
For more information see the video, Oxford Bibliographies for Students
