Extra databases now included in StirGate

The StirGate service continues to expand with several additional databases now available to include in your search.

The new resources are:

Social Sciences – International Bibliography of the Social Sciences, National Criminal Justice Reference Services Abstracts, Social Care Online, Social Services Abstracts and Sociological Abstracts.

Further databases will be added to StirGate shortly – we will announce these via our blog and on our Twitter @isstirling.
