New database: CSA Illustrata Trial access for June 2007

CSA Illustrata Trial for month of June 2007

Try it out and lest us know what you think. I did a quick search for some dentistry topics and there are some dentistry journals indexed in the CSA Illustrate such as, the International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry, Community Dentistry & Oral Epidemiology, Dental Traumatology, and more!

"CSA Illustrata provides web-based access to indexed tables, figures, maps, graphs, charts and other images contained in scholarly articles. This unique tool provides researchers precision, efficiency, and relevance in the data discovery process. Users can display the full image, including captions and label text - all of which can be easily saved or imported and used for presentations, lectures or research. The first database in the family, CSA Illustrata: Natural Sciences, includes tables and figures from more than 1,000 journals from prominent publishers resulting in more than 1 million indexed images."
