    Hi Everyone -

    I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to participate via webinar in a free Department of the Interior Library Training Session entitled "Introduction to the Black Studies in Video Collection" on Tuesday, November 10th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET, part of our series of free training sessions available from the DOI Library.

    ProQuest/Alexander Street's Black Studies in Video collection is an award-winning African-American Studies portfolio that brings together seminal documentaries, powerful interviews, and previously unavailable archival footage surveying the Black experience. The collection contains 500 hours of film covering African-American history, politics, art and culture, family structure, gender relationships, and social and economic issues. It also includes documentaries on leading artists, writers, musicians, playwrights, and performers, such as Toni Morrison, Langston Hughes, Huey P. Newton, Frantz Fanon, Zora Neale Hurston, Richard Wright, Eldridge Cleaver, August Wilson, Bobby Seale, Ethel Waters, Amiri Baraka, and Robert F. Williams. A ProQuest trainer will join us for a closer look at the resources available in this newly purchased online database (available to DOI employees on their computer workstations via the DOI Library's website) as well as offer hints as to how to best search through and find specific materials in this collection.

    All that are interested are invited. Please go to the following link to request webinar registration information:
