There’s new content in the following science/social sciences databases (interdisciplinary humanities as well), so you will want to run your regular searches, and new ones, through these old favorites again:
Science Direct– we now have access to almost double the amount of journals– over 2000 of ‘em!
ACM Digital Archive (that would be the Association for Computing Machinery)–we now have access to the complete digital archive, which includes proceedings from both the ACM and the IEEE.
SpringerLink–access to almost all of the ebooks and journals published by Springer, and that’s a lot! We now have a link to the SpringerLink database as a whole so you can search across all content at once.
To commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the exhibition Bowdoin Boys in Blue—and Gray honors the role of Bowdoin’s own during those defining years for national identity, states’ rights, and individual freedoms.
Fully twenty-five percent of then-living Bowdoin alumni and students—317 men (including eighteen Confederates)—served during the Civil War, a participation rate higher than that of any other northern college. Among those ranks were four Medal of Honor recipients, a member of Lincoln’s cabinet, several commanders of U.S. Colored Troops, and soldiers serving throughout the various theatres of combat, from Gettysburg to Louisiana. Their letters, diaries, and other personal papers, selected from the holdings of Bowdoin’s George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives, illuminate the Civil War period both in the field and on the home front.
The exhibition, located on the second floor of Hawthorne-Longfellow Library, is open to the public daily from January 21 through June 1, 2013, free of charge.
