When “Plus” size is good news!

There is something about spring and the arrival of longer nights that makes the blood in your veins get all itchy. Before you know it you are ready to shake off the winter inertia and pull weeds in the garden and donate clothes that are no longer your size and never will be again.

Everything likes a tidy up and our eResources are no different. This year our popular Australasian eResource Australia/New Zealand Reference Centre has undergone an upgrade and expanded into “Plus” size territory.

What this means is that it has added more content including a number of new journal titles including Australian Financial Review and Choice, which is basically the Australian version of Consumer. I love Choice as it has just released its “Shonkys” for 2015basically awards for the worst in consumer products. They have pointed the finger this year at Kleenex flushable wipes which are only flushable if you want a visit from your plumber!

Designed for libraries in Australia and New Zealand (a rarity in itself), Australia/New Zealand Reference Centre Plus combines Australasian magazines, newspapers and online reference books to create a large collection of regional full text content. There are also full text biographies and a collection of images containing more than one million photos, maps, and flags (but which one?).

So have a look at this new Plus size eResource for your New Zealand or Australian research needs. It will help make everything "sweet as".
