eLibrary Spotlight: Introducing HeritageHub & Black Life in America

We're very happy to announce the addition of two new eResources from Newsbank! 

HeritageHub

Explore your family history with the premier collection of U.S. obituaries and death notices. Do in-depth genealogical research. HeritageHub helps you easily identify relatives, uncover new information and potentially unknown family members. Includes deep coverage from all 50 states, hard-to-find content from the mid 1900’s, and original obituary images. 

Black Life in America

This primary source collection offers an expansive window into centuries of African American history, culture, and daily life. The collection includes many topical categories, including slavery and flights to freedom, voting rights, voter suppression and disenfranchisement, segregation and civil rights, prejudice and discrimination, activism, and protest movements.

The content is drawn from more than 19,000 American and global news sources, including over 400 current and historical Black publications.
