From 24 to 452: that’s the increase in full-text journals from SAGE that Oesterle Library gained by purchasing access to the SAGE Premier Database.

SAGE is a leader in the academic publishing market. They publish journals, books, and electronic media. “SAGE Premier is a really exciting addition to the library’s online journal holdings,” says Emily Prather, Technical Services Coordinator at Oesterle Library.

According to Prather, “[The database] includes full text access to 452 journals published by SAGE, spanning a wide range of subjects. Access includes current issues and all of the older issues all the way back to 1999.”

So while you working on researching for an article or a paper remember, you now have over 18 times the resources that you used to at your fingertips from SAGE. A list of all the SAGE Journals is available at http://www.sagepub.com/journalsIndex.nav .
