Thanks to Mason’s membership in VIVA, the Virtual Library of Virginia, Mason users now have access to six additional databases in the social sciences:
- Political Science Complete
- SocIndex with Full Text
- Child Development & Adolescent Studies
- Race Relations Abstracts
- Urban Studies Abstracts
- Violence & Abuse Abstracts
All of these new electronic resources are based on the EBSCO platform and can be accessed through the Libraries’ Database Portal and the New e-Resources page of the Libraries’ website, library.gmu.edu
VIVA’s subscription to EconLit, formerly based on the ProQuest platform, has moved to EBSCO and is now available with full text. EconLit is also accessible through the Libraries’ Database Portal.
VIVA, located at Mason’s Arlington campus, is the consortium of nonprofit academic libraries within the Commonwealth of Virginia. Members include all 39 state-assisted colleges and universities (ranging from doctoral schools to community colleges), as well as 32 independent institutions and the Library of Virginia. VIVA contributes to higher education in Virginia by – among other roles – providing shared access to online library resources.
