I am forwarding this on behalf of Arlene Weible, the new lead for the Statewide Database Licensing Program at the State Library. - Jen Maurer

Thanks to an inquiry from the library community, we are happy to announce a new volume has been added to American Decades, a title available in the statewide contract for the Gale Virtual Reference Library (GVRL).

American Decades: 2000-2009
Gale, 2011
Description: Covers monumental events and groundbreaking individuals as well as details of Americans' daily lives. Supports historical research in disciplines from the arts and business to law, medicine, technology and social trends. This volume updates the 10 volume set, American Decades Primary Sources, which covers 1900-1999 and was published in 2004.

This reference source is also available in another database available through the statewide contract, US History in Context. This resource provides a mix of reference works, journal articles, and primary and multimedia sources (including government documents, audio, video, and image galleries). More detailed info about the contents of the database can be found at the Gale web site:

This is a great tool for middle, high school, and undergraduate students doing history research that requires primary source material.

If you need any assistance accessing these resources through the statewide contract, please contact me.

Please remember that, as with all of the statewide Gale databases, the reference titles provided through the state GVRL contract are available only for the duration of the contract. If your library would like to purchase permanent access to reference works in GVRL, please contact your Gale sales representative<http://galesupport.com/oregon/>.
