New Resources


We now have access to the following research databases:
  • Africa Knowledge Project: Africa Knowledge Project promotes Critical African Studies and disseminates Africa-centered, evidence-based knowledge on Africa and African Diaspora.
  • CC Search: CC Search searches across more than 300 million images from open APIs and the Common Crawl dataset. It goes beyond simple search to aggregate results across multiple public repositories into a single catalog, and facilitates reuse through features like machine-generated tags and one-click attribution.
  • Gale Primary Sources: Digital historical documents from over 500 years of world history, curated by Gale and partnering libraries from around the world.
  • Making of the Modern Law: Foreign Primary Sources: Historical legal codes, statutes, regulations and commentaries on codes from the UK, France, Germany and other countries in northern Europe.
  • RIPM Jazz (Retrospective Index to Music Periodicals: Jazz): 105 full-text, searchable jazz periodicals published in the United States between 1914–2000.
If you have questions about any of these resources or if you have suggestions for new resources we should add, please contact your Personal Librarian.
