LANL ArXiv E-Print Archive

Resource Type: 

The LANL Archive is an archive of unrefereed preprints in the fields of physics, mathematics, non-linear science, computer science, and quantitative biology. It is run almost entirely automatically. Researchers from around the world may post their writing at no cost. Most postings are in English, but some appear in other languages. Postings can be accessed simply as a chronological listing in each subject area, or researchers may do searches by topic, author, etc.

This service has many advantages. It is completely free and available to everyone in the world (with a computer). Postings are publicly available within 24 hours of submission. A wide variety of formats are possible, allowing for more informal discussions of material such as might appear in a seminar.

This service also has a number of disadvantages. The most obvious is that it is up to the reader to judge the reliability of each posting. Many postings are written by reputable researchers and often published in peer reviewed journals. However, there is a certain amount of junk.

Use this site to find the latest information and unpublished material. Once it has been published, refer to the published article for your research.

EBSCO Business Databases


EBSCO is a company that provides Trent Library with various databases. There are 2 specific Business databases and some related databases available to us. The link to EBSCO Business Databases provides access to all these databases. At the opening screen you can choose which of these databases you wish to search. If you choose more databases you will find more results but they will likely be less specific/relevant. 

Databases Included:

  • Business Source Complete Database Description
  • Regional Business News 
  • Academic Search Elite Database Description
  • Political Science Complete Database Description
  • Public Affairs Index Database Description
  • Public Administration Abstracts Database Description
  • eBook Collection Database Description

NOTE: If you wish to search only Business Source Complete, you may find the direct link to Business Source Complete more useful because it uses a search engine (interface) more suited to business topics.

Eighteenth Century Journals I & II


Rare printed British journals, periodicals and newspapers of the long eighteenth century not covered in EEBO, ECCO or Early English Newspapers. All items are full text searchable.

This project brings together rare journals printed between 1693 and 1799 illuminating all aspects of eighteenth-century social, political and literary life. Many are ephemeral, lasting only for a handful of issues, others run for several years. They offer effective coverage of the important issues of the period, and are invaluable to the study of all aspects of the eighteenth century, including crime, sport, advertising, the theatre; fashion; politics, revolution; agriculture; social issues and society life.

There are polemics, poetry, letters to the press, reviews of drama and novels, contemporary adverts and essays on almost every conceivable topic.

HighWire Press


As the leading ePublishing platform, HighWire (a division of the Stanford University Libraries) partners with independent scholarly publishers, societies, associations, and university presses to facilitate the digital dissemination of journals.

HighWire provides the platform on which the publications are made available, not the content.

Some of the journals are available by subscription only and Trent subscribes to many of these.


Trent does not subscribe to the all HighWire Press e-journals; hence you may get results that include pay-per-view articles when you use the search engine. Please keep in mind that you have the option of ordering those articles through Trent's Interlibrary Loan system without a charge. Also, check our E-Journals A-Z to find out if we have access from another site.

Some content is available to the public, without subscription.
