Free Trial of Gale's Slavery and Anti-Slavery, Parts I and II

Gale / Cengage has graciously given us a brief free trial to Slavery and Anti-Slavery, Parts I and II. Part I is: Debates over Slavery and Abolition while Part II is: Slave Trade in the Atlantic World. The Slavery and Anti-Slavery database contains:
  • 2.6 million cross-searchable pages: 10,698 books, 130 serials, 31 manuscript collections and 377 Supreme Court records and briefs
  • Newly commissioned essays, links to websites, biographies, chronology and bibliographies; reference materials from Macmillan, Charles Scribner’s Sons, and Gale encyclopedias
  • Collections published through partnerships with the Amistad Research Center, the Bibliothèque nationale de France, the British Library, the National Archives in Kew, Oberlin College, University of Miami and many other institutions.

Just go to this link to try the file out, and do enjoy it through next Tuesday, when you’ll find another free trial from Gale right here.

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.
