New Year, New Resources!

We are excited to offer a variety of new electronic resources and look forward to sharing them in classes and research appointments. We hope you will explore them, too.

Twentieth Century Religious Thought: Volume I, Christianity provides extensive digital access to writings of more than 30 contemporary theologians such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Hans Urs Von Baltasar, Rosemary Radford Ruether, and James Hal Cone making texts previously available only in print form accessible to library users regardless of location.

Oxford Research Encyclopedia: American History includes substantive, authoritative entries on varied topics, all of which receive ongoing updates. Additions are also underway.

Indigenous Peoples: North America Archive collects books, manuscripts, newspaper and magazine articles, and photographs held in the archival collections of institutions as diverse as Gonzaga University and the Chilocco Indian School.

Slavery & Anti-Slavery organizes content by part: Part I: Debates over Slavery and Abolition, Part II: Slave Trade in the Atlantic World, Part III: The Institution of Slavery, and Part IV: The Age of Emancipation. Each includes books, manuscripts, newspaper and magazine articles, Supreme Court records, and background information from reference sources.
