VIVA’s Complete Cambridge Sciences Collection (CCSC) has been upgraded to the ProQuest SciTech Collection!
Previously, VIVA provided public institutions with access to the CCSC, which represented A&I and full text resources across many areas of the sciences. With this upgrade, all public institutions will have access to the full ProQuest SciTechCollection. This collection includes ALL of the content included in the CCSC as well as additional content. It also moves VIVA away from what was a custom package to a product currently sold and marketed by ProQuest. Access to the ebrary Academic: Science and Technology Collection that has been associated with the CCSC will continue, as will access to the Physical Education Index. The ProQuest SciTech Collection is summarized here, and a spreadsheet of the additional content that institutions will be receiving as a result of this upgrade is available upon request. The collection includes over 55,000 titles (the total for both A&I and full-text, 7,200 of which are full-text journal and proceedings titles) and over 110,000,000 records (over 26,000,000 of which are full-text documents).
VIVA has started subscriptions for Mergent Intellect and Investext Snapshot, effective 2/1/16. These subscriptions will be added to its existing Mergent Online and Horizaon subscription. All public institutions and the pooled funds private institutions will have access to this new content.
Investext Snapshot, or the Thomson Reuters Embargoed Research Collection, includes authoritative analyses of companies, industries, products, and markets that are written by analysts at investment banks and independent research firms. It can be found as a new tab within the Mergent Online platform. (Because this upgrade included activation for Mergent Online Premium as well as Investext, schools may see a few new tabs added to Mergent Online in addition to the Investext Snapshot tab.)
Mergent Intellect provides extensive information about private companies, both active and inactive. It is on a separate platform from Mergent Online.
