Other than previously available indexes like Geographic Terms, you can also browse by:
- Company Entity
- Reviews & Products
Entries from these 3 indexes have also been added to the Subject Terms index.

To explore the indexes, once you’re in the individual database, find the blue menu bar at the top and look for the word Indexes.
Please feel free to contact the Library Info Desk if you’d like a quick demo. Happy browsing 🙂
