Stay Up-to-Date with News & Recent Scholarship Using Library Databases


Monitor Academic Blogs with ACI Scholarly Blog Index

The ACI Scholarly Blog Index is a curated collection of abstracts of scholarly blogs as well as social media. It is compiled by researchers and librarians and is intended as a current awareness, research and reference database for the academic community. Search by name using “exact quotes” or search by keyword or institution, and then sort your results by relevance, date and/or popularity. You can also narrow your results to the postings with the most comments, by author, by author degree and by affiliated institutions.
