For the Fall 2021 semester, we have currently been advised that we should offer some in-person consultation options, depending on your preference. I am offering remote only consultations (via Zoom) on Mondays and Thursdays. You will have the option of remote or in-person consultations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Click the Schedule Appointment button on this page below my photo.
Most library resources are available via a URL proxy prefix, but you can also download and install the VPN. Being connected to the VPN makes our electronic resources behave as if you were connected to YaleSecure.
Resources accessed from the library website and catalog will automatically use the off-campus access URL prefix. If you are off-campus, not on the VPN, and NOT accessing a resource through the library website, the prefix is https://yale.idm.oclc.org/login?url= ... and you would get to JSTOR by putting that in front of the JSTOR URL: https://yale.idm.oclc.org/login?url=https://jstor.org
Yale Library is piloting something called Lean Library Access for the fall semester that makes accessing resources more seamless from off-campus. Zotero also has a plugin feature that can automatically save the proxy prefix. View more info on the remote access page.
Sometimes, we have access to a resource through an aggregator, not the publisher's website. In those cases, checking the library website for access is very useful.
Yale University Library has just done a major website redesign. If you are having difficulties locating something you need that was on the old website, please email me.
Articles+ is a single search box that covers about 80% of Yale's online resources. It's great for linguistics because you can search across multiple article/ebook platforms simultaneously for what we have in full text — or you can check the box that says "add results beyond your library's collection" to include abstracts that you could request via interlibrary loan. Once you search, use the faceting to narrow down to specific subject terms, content types, date ranges, and more.
The LDC is an open consortium of universities, libraries, corporations, and government research labs that was formed to improve data for language tech research and development. The catalog contains 100s of holdings, with corpora that either stand on their own or were used for specific projects. It has a helpful search page.
LLBA contains information about publications in Linguistics and related fields from 1973 – Present. The database provides abstracts of journal articles and citations to book reviews drawn from over 1,500 serials publications, and also provides abstracts of books, book chapters, and dissertations.
The MLA International Bibliography is a subject index for books, articles, and other information resources in modern languages, literatures, folklore, and linguistics. To make the best use of this resource, use its Thesaurus (look at the blue bar, upper right, once you click) or search using the Linguistics Topic field. You can also make use of the abstract indexing to do test searches and refine your results as you go.
WALS is a publication put out by the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. You can browse languages by feature (e.g., languages with Feature 93A, "position of interrogative phrases in content questions") and connect to the resource where the language is described.
Please email me or use the Schedule Appointment button. Appointments will happen using Zoom or other videoconferencing software. Zoom has a phone option for those who need to call in. Depending on current pandemic restrictions and library policy, an in-person option may be available in the scheduler.
My default ONSITE days are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. I am OFFSITE most Mondays and Thursdays.
