New databases added to the Pitt ULS A to Z list

Dennis Smith, the Coordinator for Collection Development for the University Library System, has announced that the following databases have been added to the A-Z List. These are databases that are available freely on the internet. They are key resources in their respective fields, and it was determined that they should be added to our list of available databases. 1. Compact Memory: offers actual reproductions of important research journals for German-Jewish history and genealogy research, covering the entire German-speaking world.
