New Database: Slavery in America and the World

October 18, 2016

The Library is pleased to announce the addition of Hein Online’s Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law to our database collection. According to the Hein website, this resource brings together “all known legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world, as well as materials on free African-Americans in the colonies and the U.S. before 1870. Included are every statute passed by every state and colony, all federal statutes, all reported state and federal cases on slavery, and hundreds of books and pamphlets on the subject. In total, the collection contains more than 1,000 titles and nearly 850,000 pages.” The Hein Company has made this content freely available to libraries in order to support its core vale of Corporate Citizenship. You can find this resource listed alphabetically on the Library’s Databases A-Z List.
