New Archive Collection: The Greensboro Massacre, 1979

We now have access to a new Archives Unbound Collection from Gale Digital Collections.
The Greensboro Massacre, 1979: Shootout between the American Nazis & the Communist Workers Party
"This collection of FBI, local and state police, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, and the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department, sheds new light on the motivations of the Communist organizers, the shootings, subsequent investigations, and efforts to heal the Greensboro community following the Greensboro, North Carolina Massacre of 1979."

It's Open Access Week!

You know firsthand that students are expected to cite articles from scholarly journals when they write research papers. You’ve probably used journal articles in your coursework. You’ve probably also encountered journal articles that you wanted to read – potentially important articles – but couldn’t get access to.
It doesn’t have to be this way.

This is what Open Access (OA) is all about.  Open Access means free, unrestricted access on the Internet to the same type of high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship that is available by subscription.
