Try Black Studies Center from ProQuest here for free

In my October 8th post about ProQuest’s free new resource, Black Literature Index, I idly wondered if it might be possible to get a free trial to their Black Studies Center and Historical Black Newspapers… and ProQuest came through with a free trial in very short order. To get access to Black Studies Center (with all the links to Historical Black Newspapers activated), just go to:

and enjoy it till October 31st! My thanks to Beth Dempsey for setting this up.

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
