CSA Illustrata: Technology Free Trial

Waldo Library is currently running a free trial of a technology database called CSA Illustrata: Technology Abstracts that retrieves thumbnails of tables, figures, and charts from journal articles. This enables you to zero in on articles that have data that you are looking for. (Note: not all the charts are immediately accessible in full text online – in many cases, you still need to track the actual article down.)

If you are interested in checking this revolutionary new search tool out, please go to the following Library proxied link (where you will be prompted for your BroncoNet ID and password):
