Oxford W.E.B. Du Bois

Leyburn Library has acquired the new Oxford W.E.B. Du Bois set, a landmark in the publishing of works by African American authors.
Edited by Henry Louis Gates, this 19-volume collection contains all the literary works by Du Bois in the broad range of fields in which this eminent scholar worked. In the words of the publisher, “In addition to his scholarly works of history and sociology, the series includes his efforts in fiction, nonfiction, biography, and autobiography– both in long form and in essays.”
You can see the complete list of volumes in Annie, here.
For more information about the set, see this publisher’s page.

Sex and Drinking Data

Leyburn Library continues to develop its collection of online reference electronic books (e-books) with these two statistical compilations:
American Sexual Behavior
Who’s Buying Alcoholic and Nonalcoholic Beverages
Like most e-books available through the library Web site and Annie, these two titles are Washington and Lee subscriptions — not free Web resources — and are available online to current W&L faculty, students, and staff from just about any location in the world permitting access to our campus computing network.
If you have questions or comments about these or other reference e-books, please contact Dick Grefe.
