February is Black History Month! You can learn more about black history in Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Guide to Black History, available online at .

This guide and many other useful and enlightening resources are a part of the Encyclopedia Britannica Online Academic Edition, a subscription made available to you through the University Library and the Alabama Virtual Library. This online academic version of EB contains much more information than its free online counterpart, available on the free Internet. This subscription includes:

· Full EB content;
· Research tools, including Timelines, World Data Analyst, Compare Countries, World Atlas, Notable Quotations, and Gateway to the Classics;
· Thousands of video clips, images, and animations;
· Daily features;
· The Britannica Blog;
· News headlines; and
· Featured spotlights relevant to current events and history.

If it’s been awhile since you used the Encyclopedia Britannica, toss out any notions you have of multivolume dusty texts; get acquainted with EB Online Academic. You’ll be surprised at what you can find.
