UMass Lowell Libraries has begun a one-month trial to Factiva from Dow Jones. The trial runs through March 12, 2010. For access please visit the library’s Trial and New Resources page.
Factiva offers information from more than 28,000 leading sources from 157 countries in 23 languages, including regional and industry publications, Web and blog content. Articles are supplemented with charts and graphs, timelines, themes and trends, that allow for quick analysis.
Translations of foreign publications are now available using advanced technology from Language Weaver that allow articles to be “machine translated” from Spanish, French,
Italian, German, Russian, Chinese (Traditional) and Chinese (Simple) into English or vice versa.
User alerts are also provided that can be easily created for general or sophisticated topics with timed or continuous delivery to e-mail, RSS or mobile devices.
