Trial: Archives Unbound

We currently have a trial for Archives Unbound from Gale Cengage.

From the site: “Archives Unbound presents topically-focused digital collections of historical documents that support the research and study needs of scholars and students at the college and university level. Collections in Archives Unbound cover a broad range of topics from the Middle Ages forward-from Witchcraft to World War II to twentieth-century political history. Collections are chosen for Archives Unbound based on requests from scholars, archivists, and students.”

This is a multi-disciplinary resource that covers more than 60 collections in areas such as American History (Freedom Riders in the South, Anti-Vietnam War Organizations, Travels in the West), Black Studies (Black Nationalism, Integration at the University of Mississippi, Federal Surveillance of African Americans), Asia (Chinese Civil War, the Missionary Community in China, Japan at War), Europe (Newspapers of the French Revolution, Civil War in Greece, East Germany from 1950-1963).

This trial will run for about three weeks.
