Stay Current with UC Federal Stimulus Opportunities

May 20th, 2009 by Deanna Johnson

On May 18, 2009 Gary Falle, Associate Vice President for Federal Governmental Relations, announced the introduction of the University of California Federal Stimulus Opportunities website:

As federal stimulus funds are being disseminated from federal agencies and as additional information, including compliance information, is being distributed, UC has developed the website to provide campuses, faculty, researchers, students and staff with the latest information on grant opportunities, agency updates as well as compliance, review and accountability information.

The site will cover the diverse research occurring across the University of California system, though will not have all stimulus information that is available.  Accordingly, faculty, researchers and administrators are urged by Gary Falle to work with campus governmental relations representatives and to monitor the federal agencies specific Recovery Act websites for additional information not covered in this site.  Questions or comments should be directed to Gary Falle.

New interface for Wildlife & Ecology Studies Worldwide, Fish & Fisheries Worldwide, and Family & Society Studies Worldwide

May 1st, 2009 by

Three more UC Davis bibliographic databases are now available on the EBSCOhost interface: Family & Society Studies Worldwide, Fish & Fisheries Worldwide, and Wildlife & Ecology Studies Worldwide. These are joining such databases as CINAHL Plus and SPORTdiscus.

NISC USA resources were purchased by EBSCO and the databases moved to the EBSCOhost interface. The previous NISC interface will cease to function after April 17, 2009. It is recommended that researchers transition to the new interface as soon as possible, and we are here to help. Drop in or sign up online for the class Improve Efficiency Searching Animal and Human Health Information or request an appointment with a Health Sciences Librarian by e-mailing or calling the Reference Desk, Monday-Friday 8am-5pm at (530) 752 7042.
