The 50-State Agency Databases Registry, which I coordinate, has launched a new set of subject-focused database collections under the heading of history:
* Biographical Databases - Databases that provide biographical sketches of authors, state officials, famous state residents, etc.
* Historical Media Databases - Databases that provide online access to photographs, video, or audio.
* Historical Newspaper and Magazine Indexes - Databases that index articles in older newspapers, journals and magazine that contain historical information. These databases will usually lead one to microfilmed items that may be obtainable through Interlibrary Loan.
