New History of Slavery Database Trial

The Libraries have set up a trial to a new Adam Matthew digital resource titledSlavery, Abolition, and Social Justice, 1490-2007. Clicking on the title link will provide access to the full database for four weeks, or until about July 13, 2007. The database is not yet feature complete; content will be released in three major phases in 2007, 2008, and 2009. Those who tried out earlier Adam Matthew database trials — Empire OnlineDefining Gender, etc. — will be familiar with the attractive interface and unique blend of primary and secondary-source material.

Note that the “download entire document in PDF” feature won’t work during the four-week trial. However, it will be possible to view, print and save individual images from the collections. During the trial period access will be from on-campus only. Please email me with your comments about this or any other history resource.
