Library Adds History Databases

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

(sometimes called Santayana’s Law of Repetitive Consequences)

 — George Santayana

To help YOU remember the past, we’ve added a couple of terrific history resources to the Library’s databases collection.

 American History in Video

American History in Video provides the largest and richest collection of video available online for the study of American history. The collection allows students and researchers to analyze historical events, and their presentation over time, through commercial and governmental newsreels, archival footage, public affairs footage, and important documentaries. 

 History Reference Center

History Reference Center (EBSCOhost) “ is the world’s most extensive full-text history reference database designed for secondary schools, public libraries, junior/community colleges, and undergraduate research.” The database features full text for more than 1,620 reference books, encyclopedias and non-fiction books from leading history publishers, and full text for more than 150 leading history periodicals.  You will also find nearly 57,000 historical documents; more than 77,000 biographies of historical figures; more than 113,000 historical photos and maps; and more than 80 hours of historical video.
