From the Director: NCLive
by Amee Odom, Director of the EKS Library
NCLive has recently added some significant vendors and databases to its already extensive collection. In order to effectively illustrate the interdisciplinary possibilities of NCLive, the Reference Department will highlight a database monthly in EKSLibris. Of the newest additions to the NCLive databases is the North American Women’s Letters and Diaries. This database can be accessed by selecting the Alphabetic List and choosing the N category.
The collection is a set of transcribed, primary correspondence from first ladies, housewives, business women, and more. A compilation of 1325 authors, the database can be searched by authors, sources, years, places, historical events, and personal events. The letters range throughout various centuries and address topics such as personal relationships, wars, Prohibition, and the Great Depression…to select only a few topics of interest.
Should you require any assistance in searching this database, please contact a Reference Librarian at 704-233-8097.
