Historical African American Newspapers

More than 65 historical African American newspapers are highlighted in a new research guide prepared by the Marist College Library. Most of the newspapers are freely available online, thanks to digitization projects undertaken by various libraries, historical societies, and Google. The guide arranges the newspapers by title, by six historical time periods, and by geographic area of coverage. The guide is available at http://libguides.marist.edu/AfricanAmericanNews

Small Business Reference Center

 Rod Library recently added this database as a result of a contract change negotiated by the State Library of Iowa.

It contains the full text of about 400 periodicals,  about 450 reference books,  numerous small business "how to" videos, and several hundred industry reports from Datamonitor. It's listed under Databases A-Z on the Rod Library home page and also from this direct link: /gateway/owl/small-business-reference-center

 

Electronic Books from ebrary

Rod Library has been adding an increasing number of electronic books and other e-publications over the last several years. This year, Rod Library used student technology fees to purchase an electronic books collection from a company called ebrary. It contains electronic books covering many areas of the UNI curriculum, including several thousand business and economics books from publishers such as Harvard University Press, several additional university presses, Amacom, Wiley, and Business Expert Press. Ebrary books are entered in UNISTAR, the library catalog, like print books.
