February is African American History Month

This month we encourage everyone to take some time to learn about the contributions of African Americans throughout history. We invite you to choose from a variety of educational media, including:

Books to check-out and read at your leisure--search our Catalog for African Americans;

Online books to read on the computer--search NetLibrary* or Humanities E-Book* databases;

Streaming videos to watch in the library or at home--search Discovery Education Streaming*;

Reviewed websites found on the Librarians Internet Index; and

Digital records of images, sound, video, maps, prints, etc. of African American History at American Memory from the Library of Congress.

And the College's Multicultural Services office will offer several programs during the month, so watch for upcoming announcements on KIM or call the office at 697-3371.

*These databases require passwords for off-campus access. To receive password information, call 697-4448 to verify your current status.
