Remote Resources at the Boyden Library

Steve Berman – April 2, 2020

Hello everyone,

I hope this finds all well as we transition into digital learning spaces, and a new way of engaging and interacting with each other.

With that in mind, I want to make sure the school community is aware and reminded of the plethora of digital resources available through Boyden Library.

Newspapers

The New York Times with “TimesMachine” Archive contains national and international news, opinion, and commentary. The “TimesMachine” archive provides access to 150 years of archival material. You can browse by date, or utilize the search function.

Complete, digital access to the New York Times from any location is granted via Academic Passes.

The Wall Street Journal includes not only stock market information, but commentary on all aspects of global business, economics, consumer affairs, current trends and issues.

Normally, the WSJ is only available on-campus through the GreenDoor Network. While we are remote learning, remote access will be grated through:

Username: schoolaccess@wsj.com

Password: wsj123

Databases

Boyden Library offers a robust set of databases.  To access our databases, please go through the library webpage to access the databases – do not Google the title, as that will bring you to their corporate site.  Going through the library page will activate our proxy server, which is necessary to log in for full access from off campus.

Databases by Title

Databases by Subject

Databases for Streaming Video

If you cannot find something, please ask us to help find what you are looking for!

LibGuides

As the library staff continues to work with classes, we will continue to update and create new LibGuides with a focus on digital and remote access resources.

Other Resources

There will be many companies that will be providing resources.  Feel free to share any links you come across that you believe would be helpful by emailing:  researchhelp@deerfield.edu

For example:

Internet Archive, National Emergency Library

To address our unprecedented global and immediate need for access to reading and research materials, the Internet Archive will suspend waitlists for the 1.4 million (and growing) books in our lending library by creating a National Emergency Library to serve the nation’s displaced learners. This suspension will run through June 30, 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later.

As always, please reach out directly with any questions you might have.

Yours in the library,

Mr. Carroll
