ccAdvisor - Choice and The Charleston Company (10/15/2018) New!

Choice and The Charleston Company have collaborated to deliver a searchable, authoritative, peer-reviewed guide to academic databases, websites, and tools. This continuously updated, interactive service provides comprehensive, comparative, and authoritative information on a wide range of digital resources. ccAdvisor makes you more effective by helping you select the best and most appropriate resources for your research. Essentially, ccAdvisor is a database comparison tool.

Creating an account (please note - must be on Central Campus to create an account):

IP authentication is the first point of access.  You can search and retrieve full text content without a UN & PW.  If you are within IP authentication (on central campus), you can create a UN & PW, by clicking on Log In at the top tool bar and then click on Create Account. After you have created your UN & PW (on central campus), you can use it remotely.

Using ccAdvisor with an account:

A UN & PW allows you to create a List and then from the List make it a Cardstack. The Cardstack enables you to share titles with your colleagues, and it allows them to vote on each title and add a comment too.  You also have the ability to create a Comparison Table, one of the most powerful tools in the database. When on the new site, you will notice on the left we have many facets you can click on (one at a time) to filter your search results. You can limit by Primary Categories, Secondary Categories, Review Types, and Access Types to name a few. With a UN & PW, you can also Save Searches and set up Alerts.  The alerts can be sent every 30 days or every 7 if you want to see the new titles sooner.
