Gale Virtual Reference Library is a database of encyclopedias and specialized reference sources for multidisciplinary research. These reference materials once were accessible only in the library, but now you can access them online from the library or remotely 24/7. Because each library creates its own eBook collection, the content you see may vary if you use the database at different libraries (your school, your public library, or your office).

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library: Integrating Ole Miss Digital History ID 4288
Mississippi's refusal to integrate the campus in 1962 led to a showdown between state and federal authorities and the storming of the campus by a segregationist mob. Two people died and dozens were injured. In the end, Ole Miss, the state of Mississippi, and the nation were forever changed. This website lets visitors witness the events firsthand through the actual letters, recorded telephone conversations, and images of those who made history. http://microsites.jfklibrary.org/olemiss/home/
