This month the highlighted database is a product of the Greenwood Publishing Group and is entitled, Historic Events of the 20th Century. The database focuses on the following events: The Civil Rights Movement, the Collapse of communism in the Soviet Union, The Holocaust, World War I, and World War II.
Each event link provides an overview of the event and its place in history, a timeline, appendixes, major biographies, a selected terms glossary, an annotated bibliography, and access to primary documents. The timelines are very extensive and contain hyperlinks for cross-referencing.
Additionally, each event contains tabs that link to documents, maps, multimedia resources, student resources, and teacher resources. These materials should prove beneficial in specific and cross-curriculum studies. Should you require any assistance in searching this database, please contact a Reference Librarian at 8097.
