Online Access to The Washington Post

A few months ago, we advertised free online access to The Washington Post via the newspaper’s website.  Unfortunately, The Washington Post decided to discontinue its free accounts for all users with academic (.edu) email addresses; so we’re looking into other subscription options at this time.  Please note that you may still access The Washington Post in Newspaper Source with only a few days’ delay.  (If you’re interested in starting a personal subscription, The Washington Post offers a discounted Academic Rate for all K-12 teachers, U.S. college students, faculty, and staff.)
World War I and America

We're excited for more World War I and America programming in the spring!  Many of you attended both Fall 2017 lectures—Dr. Douglas Bomberger’s “American Music and the First World War” and Dr. David Kenley’s “World War I: The View from the East”—in the library.  The following events coincide with the February arrival of the traveling exhibition:
  • An opening celebration with a lecture by Dr. Chelsea Schields, "Defining the Nation: Gender, Race, and Belonging in World War I" (February 14, 2018, at 11:00am in the High Library)
  • A panel discussion led by Dr. Brian Newsome and featuring veterans and conscientious objectors (February 21, 2018, at 7:00pm in Gibble Auditorium)
Sponsored by the High Library and the Center for Global Understanding and Peacemaking, this programming is a part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of the Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
