Description

Artemis: “In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her. In later Hellenistic times, she even assumed the ancient role of Eileithyia in aiding childbirth.”  Wikipedia: Artemis

Searching

For guidance see Help. And see the video Using the Term Frequency and Term Cluster Features in Artemis

Subject Indexing

Subject terms have been added.  A standard keyword search can only retrieve a result if the search term is in the text. Subject indexing takes searching beyond these limitations, allowing users to discover content even if the search term is not present in the text. 

Term Frequency

Similar to the Google Books Ngram Viewer. Both Terms Clusters (below) and Frequency reflect only what the institution owns and is, therefore, searchable in Artemis.

This capability presents data graphically and is accessible from a screen that displays the results of a search, that is, a list of citations.    Look to the left of the screen.  It can suggest the importance of particular concepts during given periods. It allows users to ask new questions of historical data, e.g., Is there a connection between "bread" and "revolution"? Does the frequency of the word "Empire" coincide with the rise of the term "tragedy" and "comedy" in popular discourse? For popularity: the number of total documents by year. 

Term Clusters

This capability also presents data graphically --  in this instance through a wheel of concentric circles -- and is accessible from a screen that displays the results of a search, that is, a list of citations.    Look to the left of the screen.  Users can see terms that commonly occur in relation to their own search term, which helps uncover hidden connections, or can be a helpful starting point in the early stages of research. The term cluster for "disaster" might bring up related topics such as "Mining Disaster," "Fire," or "Earthquake," prompting users down different research paths. 

Citation Management Software: EndNote and More

Citations may be sent to a folder (by clicking on the folder to the right of a retrieved citation) and then displayed by selecting the folder at the top of the screen. Then select Citation Tools and select EndNote or another citation management program.  In addition to EndNote, EasyBib, Procite, Reference Manager, and RefWorks are supported.
