Our best citing reference searching tool is Web of Science, but we do have other tools. Google Scholar's Cited By links are useful and sometimes give me a few unique references. Recently Google Scholar has added the ability to search within cited articles; I expect this will be very handy sometimes. I do find downloading citations from Google Scholar a bit clunky, although you can download one by one using Get it! buttons, if you have your Scholar Preferences set to include "Washington University in St Louis - Get it! @ WU." Get it! buttons are automatic if you are working on campus. [I think here are other tools that solve this problem also, such as Mendeley and others.] The University of Prince Edward Island has recently canceled their access to Web of Science and are hoping that alternatives may serve their scholars sufficiently. Don't worry; we are not considering this at WU currently. But I have listed a few of our alternatives here: Citation Tools. If you have other favorites, please let me know.
Western Waters Digital Library offers free public access to digital collections of significant primary and secondary resources on water in the western United States. The WWDL is a valuable resource for researchers, policy makers, scholars, Native American tribes, professionals working in various fields, and others interested in contemporary and historic water issues.
WU Libraries are developing a mobile site. Feel free to give it a try at: http://library.wustl.edu/m/. Expect improvements, but I will happily send along your comments and suggestions if you have some.
This list was generated by searching for new books with call numbers Q-T and with "history" or "biography" in the subject headings. Note: When the book is "in process" you can REQUEST it; you will then be notified as soon as it is available.
