Electronic Database Trials
UNLV Libraries patrons have temporary access from the UNLV campus to the databases listed below.
**You may not be able to access these from off-campus.**
The Libraries arrange trial access to electronic resources that are under consideration for a subscription. Librarians review databases for addition to the collection twice per year and your comments are very valuable in this selection process. Please let us know what you think of the resources by filling out the comments form.
If you have any questions about these products or would like to recommend a product for a future trial please contact a Subject Librarian.
The Armed Conflict Database (ACD) monitors armed conflicts worldwide, focusing on political, military and humanitarian trends in current conflicts, whether they are local rebellions, long-term insurgencies, civil wars or inter-state conflicts.
In addition to the comprehensive historical background for each conflict, the weekly timelines and the monthly updates, the statistics, data and reports in the ACD date back to 1997. The compilation of statistics, which includes the status of conflicts, fatalities, and refugees, also contributes to the ACD Index, where annual conflict trends are highlighted.
The ACD covers the world’s international, internal and terrorist conflicts, whether active, subject to a ceasefire, or halted by a peace accord. Users can generate reports and download data as well as browse year-by-year analyses and fact sheets.Try out this database!
