New Database at KPU Library: Frontier Life

Fri, Sep 15, 2017

Great news! Coast Capital Savings Library at KPU now has access to the database Frontier Life: Borderlands, Settlement & Colonial Encounters. A digital collection of primary source documents, Frontier Life helps users "understand existence and consequences on the various frontiers that arose from the movements of Europeans to Africa, Australasia and North America" (website, "Nature and Scope").  It features documents such as maps, diaries, correspondence and legal documents spanning the frontier regions during the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Subjects include Indigenous Peoples, Government & Politics, Exploration & Expeditions, and more! This database is accessible at all campus libraries, and off campus to students and KPU employees.
