America: History and Life is the definitive index of literature covering the history and culture of the United States and Canada, from prehistory to the present. This database includes indexing for 1,700 journals from as far back as 1910.
JSTOR provides electronic access to back runs of more than 2,000 important scholarly journals as well as respected literary journals, academic monographs, research reports from trusted institutes, and primary sources. Due to "moving wall" agreements with the publishers, JSTOR does not include current issues of journals; the most recently published issue of any current journal will not appear in JSTOR until 1-5 years after the publishing date.
The Oxford African American Studies Center provides students, scholars and librarians with more than 10,000 articles by top scholars in the fields of African American Studies and African and Diaspora Studies. The core content is taken from several academic reference books. Articles, primary sources, images and multimedia, maps, and data can be searched or browsed. There is a five concurrent user limit on this database.
