NCLA Bracket

ScienceDirect       VS          Lexis Nexis

 

Overview:

This matchup was completely unexpected! With LexisNexis unexpectedly taking the eighth seed, they look to be a underrated opponent.

Heard around the water cooler:

“I was shocked, I mean, an eight seed? What were they thinking?! If anything I’d have to give em at least a five seed. ” – Anonymous AU Librarian

“I just started laughing. I mean ya, LexisNexis is a great database, but have you seen its interface? No competition bro.” – Scholes student worker

JSTOR    VS   Engineering Village

Overview:

Talk about DRAMA! We’ve got two MAJOR fan favorites here. While both cover completely different areas, this should be a close matchup.

Heard around the water cooler:

“Man… (shakes head) how do I choose? Why would they put these two in the same bracket? I’m going to need another cup of coffee ” – Engineering/History double major 

“This AGAIN just verifies that the selection committee pulled an all nighter before choosing matchups….. seriously though ” – Herrick student worker

Newspaper source plus    VS   scopus

Overview:

Read all about it! Newspaper Source Plus vs Scopus! Again another hard matchup, but an interesting one since Scopus is the new database in town.

Heard around the water cooler:

“Not only would I bet the game, I say Scopus takes it all. I mean who reads newspapers? Plus, h-index is the new black.” – Overheard in Macmahon

“Just because I’m an Engineer doesn’t mean I HAVE to vote Scopus, does it? I mean NSP’s got my hometown newspaper, and I’m from ALBUQUERQUE.” – Scholes Librarian
