New / Trial Databases

The following databases are newly acquired or being evaluated for a future subscription.
"Bloomsbury Cultural History covers a wide range of subjects (such as animals, childhood and family, food, music, marriage, memory, and sexuality), offering a survey of each topic’s place in Antiquity, the Medieval Age, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Age of Empire, and the Modern Age, with “thematic coverage” across all periods. Users can survey a theme broadly or dive into each period for a deeper look. The collection contains material from Bloomsbury’s six-volume “Cultural Histories” print sets, which updates each year. The collection includes more than 100 ebooks covering a variety of subjects related to social and cultural history, as well a selection of high-res images from the Wellcome Collection in London, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. An interactive time line offers a glimpse into 500 historical events related to politics, society, the arts, and science, providing users with an easy entry point into the collection."
Index and links for more than 500 Canadian government document collections, from major federal sites such as The Weekly Acquisitions List, to materials from political parties, local municipal departments, and individual historical websites.
