  • Access to rich holdings in STE print serials through a partnership with the Linda Hall Library of Science, Technology and Engineering
  • More than 800,000 non- U.S. dissertations
  • Area Studies: major collections of news, government documents, and archives from Africa, Latin America, Middle East, Europe, Asia, and South Asia
