New Library Materials for February!

As professors assign numerous assignments to their students the college library becomes an important place of reference. The right answers to your questions can be retrieved by any student by utilizing the extensive academic collection of materials that the St. Petersburg College libraries provide. Electronic databases, e-books, magazines and periodicals, books, reference books, and a vast supply of audio-visual materials, all serve to make your library experience a very informative orientation.

New to our library and just in time for the February celebration of Black History Month/African-American History Month, is the new collection entitled:

Encyclopedia of African-American Culture and History

The author of this series, Palmer (2006), provides an extensive overview about hosts of experiences that have taken place within the United States, which directly involve the Black experience. Such topics included consist of: Afrocentrism; Architecture; Black Arts Movement; Music; Molefi Kete Asante; Social Work; Sports; Spiritual Church Movement; The Million Man
March; and many others. This well researched six-volume encyclopedia set, published this year in association with The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, is a masterpiece.

Look for [Call number: REF E 185 .E54 2006] or ask a librarian for assistance.
