Black Studies Database (via NISC)

Black Studies Database will be discontinued on Friday, April 17, 2009.

EBSCO is now the provider of several of the databases originally offered by NISC. The Black Studies Database was not acquired by EBSCO and is being discontinued by NISC.

What replaces Black Studies Database?

The suggested replacement for NISC's "Black Studies Database" which included more than 170,000 citations drawn from significant and influential journals, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, pamphlets and reports relevant to the Black experience is the Black Studies Center via ProQuest.

The Black Studies Center brings together historical and current material for research projects on African-Americans, the wider African Diaspora, and Africa. It is comprised of several cross-searchable component databases including the Schomburg Studies on the Black Experience, The International Index to Black Periodicals, and Newspapers, including the full text backfile of the Afro-American newspaper, The Chicago Defender from 1910-1975.
