ABC-CLIO Launches 12 New Databases for Higher Education

The launch of our new collection of databases for higher education reflects ABC-CLIO’s commitment to creating a new, student-centered resource genre that answers new needs for research and learning in a digital world. We have integrated core, essential reference content, innovative teaching resources, and thoughtful coverage of the enduring questions that are part of history and the humanities into each of our 12 databases. Each database makes important linkages, connecting the library, course texts, and classroom to support enhanced student engagement, authentic understanding, and powerful research skills. With thousands of primary and secondary sources, fluid navigation, continually updated content, and the noteworthy contributions of scholars, educators, librarians, and subject area specialists, these databases are redefining research for students and educators alike.
