The FirstGov database has been replaced by the USA.Gov database.  In 2000 the federal government created FirstGov to serve as the centralized portal for providing electronic access to government information.  Deciding that a name change was due, the federal government has changed the name of this portal to USA.Gov.  The renamed database continues to provide online access to resources such as the Government Printing Office including:  The Federal Register; Congressional Records Service; and Legislative Service.

The ABC-CLIO company has made enhancements to the Historical Abstracts and America:  History and Life databases.  Enhancements include the maintenance of tagged search results records across multiple searches within a session, the using of "ANDing and ORing" search logic is now an option for subject terms in a displayed record, and search results are now presorted based on publication date and, secondarily, on chronological scope of the citation retrieved.

Historical Abstracts covers the history of the world from 1450 to the present (excluding the United States and Canada).  Currently over 2000 journals published throughout the world are covered.
