Martin Luther King, Jr. Day/ Civil Rights Day can be a time to look into U.S. History. The library has numerous resources for you - available from our website even when the library is closed. (All four Chandler Public Libraries are closed today, reopening with regular hours tomorrow.)
Research King and other historical figures with Biography in Context. This collection draws together content from reference books, encyclopedias, academic journals, primary sources and more. If you’re working on a paper, you can even generate a citation for your bibliography or works cited page.
Explore history with U.S. History in Context. Like Biography in Context, this collection reprints articles from a wide range of sources - far more than the library can purchase for its shelves. These articles are the equivalent of their print counterparts but don’t require you to pass through a pay wall - the library has paid the subscription for you and all our cardholders.
Check out our newest resource: Kanopy. This collection of streaming video features documentaries and other learning content, including the PBS documentary series Eyes on the Prize and other videos on King and his speeches. Sign up for a free account to get 10 video credits per month.
