Database Cancellation: PAIS

  Posted on: August 31, 2012

The Library has canceled its subscription to the multidisciplinary PAIS International database.

Most of the information accessed via PAIS can be found elsewhere using the following Library databases:

JSTOR, Sociological Abstracts, Social Sciences Citation Index and Academic Search Complete.

The decision to discontinue PAIS (Public Affairs Information Services) was based on an analysis of data showing low usage as well as a high degree of content overlap with other databases that the Library subscribes to.
