Sterling Memorial Library CD-ROM Reference Center

This page lists all of the titles available in the CD-ROM Center on the first floor of Sterling Memorial Library with a brief description of each. Use the reference databases to locate articles in journals, monograph series, dissertations, and much more. To locate a specific article or title at Yale, search in Orbis or in the SML Card Catalog for the book or journal title (e.g., t=journal of literary studies).  You can see which issues Yale owns in both the Card Catalog and in Orbis.  When you find a journal in Orbis, type HOL (for "holdings") to see what volumes Yale owns and where they are located.

The CD-ROM Center is located on the first floor of SML, across from the reference desk. Manuals for most CD-ROMs are kept in the reference office.

If assistance is needed, please ask at the Reference Desk.
