E-Journals at your desktop, and more!!!


E-Journals (Electronic Journals) at your desktop:

It will come as no surprise in our digital age that the publishers of professional and scholarly journals are distributing a growing number of their titles electronically now. The University Library has been working to make our "E-Journals" conveniently available to Cal Poly Pomona faculty, students, and staff.

You can find our e-journal holdings in two ways. When you use the Library's on-line catalog to check for our holdings of a journal the record on the screen will tell you if the title is also an e-journal by a link that says: " View this publication's electronic version." For example look at the record for Business week.

The second way to check the Library's holdings of e-journals is to go directly to the Electronic Journals page from the Library's Home Page. This page will list our e-journals as well as our index databases that carry the full-text of journal articles. As of now we have over 900 e-journals, with many more to come.

The University Library Internet Reference Site also has a page of links for Electronic Journals. Look for E-Journals on the Site map Index or go directly to the URL:

In addition to a link to the Library's electronic journals site this page has a link to the Internet Library of Early Journals (ILEJ). This "digital library of 18th and 19th Century journals" is a new and growing project from the Universities of Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, and Oxford. The titles available as of this date are selected years of: Gentleman's Magazine, The Annual Register, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Notes and Queries, The Builder, and Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine. We expect there will be more of these Internet databases of public domain journals coming.

E-Business Internet Sites:

Known by a variety of names, Electronic Business, Electronic Commerce, Internet Business, and so on, E-Business has become very popular area of study for business faculty and students. E-Business is the art and science, and technology, of using the Internet as a tool to do business. The conventional wisdom just now is that all businesses must do at least part of their work via the Internet. The University Library Internet Reference Site now has a page of links to sites for Electronic Business; look for E-Business on the Site Map Index or go directly to the URL:

We hope to add more links to E-Business Internet sites as we learn about them. Please forward any you learn about to me and I will add them.

A new encyclopedia of industry:

The Dun & Bradstreet/Gale Group Industry Handbook (Ref HG 4907 D86 Table #2) is in five volumes:

The Handbook gives thorough coverage of industries and is as close to "one-stop shopping" as a reference book on these subjects could be. The industry coverage includes a text overview, statistics and indicators, financial norms and ratios, company rankings lists, and mergers and acquisitions. The rankings lists include by sales and by employment. There are also directories of companies, associations, consultants, and trade shows for the industry. The company director has the usual information found in Dun & Bradstreet directories, including sales, employees, and industry code. The chapter on "Trade Information Sources" lists resources for more data on the industry. Indexes include companies by state. This wide coverage of industry is useful to the Cal Poly Pomona, curriculum, especially for coverage of Hospitality, Insurance, and Agriculture.

Accounting principles (GAAP) for non-profit enterprises:

We now receive the yearly Not-for-profit GAAP (Ref HF5686 N56). Major parts include the "Overview of a Not-for Profit Organization," "Basic Financial Statements," and "Specific Not-for-Profit Accounting Topics". Specific Topics include contributions, investments, and fund-raising costs. Of special interest is the part on accounting for "Other Types of Not-For-Profits;" these include churches, libraries, museums, performing arts organizations, and research and scientific organizations.
