From time to time, events bring themselves into libraries and classrooms. Significant anniversaries, news events, broad issues and cultural phenomena send patrons and students to libraries in search of information and perspective.

Helping the Curious
In an effort to help librarians with their obligation to serve the curious and involved, we're beginning a program that posts free, relevant articles from our reference work. At least once a week we'll offer a few articles/chapters that will shed light on issues in the news.

Free Relevant News
You may download these articles freely, print as many copies of these articles as you need, and distribute them any way you'd like.

Easy Downloads
To download these files either a) double click on the article name (or icon) and then save the Acrobat file, or b) right mouse click the article name (or icon) and "save as" to your computer. For more information on the reference set from which the article was taken, click the name of the set.
