Database of the Week Thursday, December 20, 2007Posted by janis6 in New Resources @ CSL, updates.
Facts on File, Inc. has created this fascinating database which includes anything you’d want to know about American Indian History. Of particular interest are the “Learning Centers by Era” that start with Beginnings to 1775: Native Societies, First Contact, and the Colonial Era, through the present featuring Contemporary Issues. This rich database can be accessed remotely by patrons using their CSL library card. The major subject categories include Biographies, Events and Topics, Primary Sources (including treaties), Maps and Charts and an Image Gallery. A unique feature is the “Editor’s Selection of the Month” which gives each of us the opportunity to an in-depth look at one particular topic.
