Addition to the Proust Collection
Three rare pieces have been donated to the Library's Marcel Proust Collection. Marcel Proust (1871-1922) is a famous French writer, and the Library's Proust Collection is among the most extensive in the world. The pieces are a generous gift from Ms. Marilyn Mitchell Gordon of St. Louis, Missouri. They include an inscribed photograph of Proust seated on a divan; a telegram from him dated September 1, 1922; and an autographed copy of Du cote de chez Swann (Swann's Way), which is the first part of his classic novel A la recherche du temps perdu (Remembrance of Things Past).

The Library's Proust Collection has been featured in Directions, the Library's newsletter (Spring 2002, Fall 2000, and Spring 2000).

Databases Added Recently
The following online databases have been added to our collection during the past several months. Everyone is welcome to access these databases from computers inside the Library. However, access from off-campus computers is restricted to UAB faculty, students, and employees. (Complete list of databases)
