Mergent is back; farewell MarketLine
A couple years ago the ULM Library had access to Mergent Online, a business database, but we replaced it with another database. Now we're going back to Mergent again, and it's better this time! Before, there was a limit on the number of people allowed to use it at one time. That user limit is now gone and everyone can use it when they need it!

You may now use Mergent Online here:

Unfortunately, Mergent will be replacing our subscription to MarketLine Advantage, which will run out at the end of this month.

New LexisNexis coming soon!
LexisNexis Academic is getting a new interface on Dec. 23rd. The look will change automatically on that day, and off-campus access should be the same.

The new search page will be similar to the current one except that there is only one search blank and navigating individual types of information will be different too. Here's a video LexisNexis made showing what the new interface will be like.
