Peek A Tab

Peek A Tab

Anyone who browses the internet with multiple tabs open knows that doing so can both help and hinder productivity: while multiple tabs allow users to quickly switch between websites and documents, it can also clutter one’s browser so that it is difficult to remember what tabs are open. Peek A Tab, a free extension for Google Chrome, may be the answer. Users can install it with just one click. Once installed, visitors can select a small Peek A Tab icon, which will appear on the upper right corner of their browser, to see an easily readable, vertical list of all currently opened tabs. Users can then quickly visit – or close – tabs using this list. This will be added to Entrepreneurial Resources Subject Tracer™.

Beyond Citation

November 23, 2016

Beyond Citation
http://www.beyondcitation.org

Researchers, students, and instructors use academic databases to find scholarship on topics of interest. Yet it is difficult to get information about how these databases work and what materials are included in – or left out of – them. In response to this challenge, a group of students in a Digital Praxis Seminar at the City University of New York (CUNY) created Beyond Citation, a website dedicated to providing the public with information and analysis about major academic search engines. As of this writing, Beyond Citation features explorations of thirteen major databases, including Google Books, Project MUSE, HathiTrust Digital Library, JSTOR, and ProQuest Historical Newspapers. Each database record includes an Overview outlining what the database contains, available Reviews of each database, and information about Access. In addition, readers will also find a useful Conversations feature, which offers links to outside analysis and criticism about the selected database. Beyond Citation not only helps researchers critically evaluate databases, but also teaches researchers how to use these databases most effectively. This will be added to Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources white paper. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™.
