EBSCO has resolved the problem we experienced yesterday with their databases. The EBSCO databases are available again!
The LexisNexis Academic database was recently expanded to include Industry Dossier and Executive Dossier information. Tabs for Industry and Executive can be found within the Company Dossier section after clicking the Companies tab on the left side of the inital screen.
The Industry Dossier can be searched by SIC code or industry-related term to get information such as financials and ratios on leading firms in an industry, from providers such as Integra and Morningstar.

The Iowa African American Hall of Fame (IAAHF) was founded in 1995 and aims to recognize "outstanding achievements of African Americans with respect to enhancing quality of life for all Iowans."

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
"Who Am I? Young Minds Forced to Choose" tells the compelling true story of young Jehovah's Witnesses who were quickly thrust into a political firestorm of Nazi propaganda. Against the tide of coercion and terror, these youths took a firm stand of conscience, often times facing severe reprisals, despite their age. The exhibit, designed by the Arnold-Liebster Foundation, is an effective tool to assist educators on how to address contemporary student issues, such as bullying, gang prevention and prejudice. The exhibit will be on display from Wednesday, Feb.
