Tech Info

Keeping up with the latest technology is a lot easier when you know where to look. If searching Google and the library’s EBSCO research databases doesn’t reveal what you need to know, try a few of the following websites:

Technology Review
Offers technology information from MIT.

Full-text articles from Technology Review are available in the library’s EBSCO MasterFile Premier database.

TED
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, and Design.

Watch TEDTalks to get inspired by people and technology.
A couple personal favorites– Aimee Mullins and Her 12 Pairs of Legs and Jill Bolte Taylor’s Stroke of Insight.

PCWorld and MacWorld
Both offer consumers news, reviews, comparisons, and how to’s.

Both websites include Business Centers, which cover the business world applications of technology.

PCWorld and MacWorld magazines are available for checkout from the Hickey College Library. Full-text articles are also available in the library’s EBSCO MasterFile Premier database.
