Database Directory guidelines

The Database Directory is intended primarily for licensed collections and tools.
Substantial open access resource datasets deemed to be of wide interest to Library users may be included, but specialised open access resources should be linked only at subject guide level.

Criteria for inclusion
• The database is licensed by the Library.
• The database is published by the Library or another University department and is designed for public use.
• The database is open access and is considered a significant New Zealand information resource.
• The database is open access and is considered a significant resource of wide interest that meets the Library’s collection management plan criteria.

• Monographs, and serials such as journals, are not generally given individual entries in the Database Directory. However an exception is made for major reference works (especially encyclopaedias) and sometimes for the archive of a single newspaper or periodical.
• Individual titles excluded from the Database Directory are candidates for linking to subject guides to assist promotion.

Final decisions
Final decisions concerning databases or titles that will be added to the Databases Directory reside with the Electronic Resources Manager.
