Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War

Lincoln Exhibit

The University of Evansville Libraries are pleased to announce a new exhibition, “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” which opened on Thursday, February 6, 2014 in the Libraries. The exhibit will continue through Friday, May 16, 2014. Dr. Robin Sager of UE's History Department will present a lecture on Wednesday, March 19 @ 4pm in the Libraries' Boardroom. Her topic is "The Life and Times of Loreta Janeta Velazquez: A Civil War Cross-Dresser".

Based upon an original interactive exhibit developed and organized by the National Constitution Center (with assistance from the American Library Association with funding provided by the National Endowment of the Humanities), this traveling version explores Lincoln’s struggle to resolve the basic questions that divided Americans at the most perilous moment in the nation’s history: Was the United States truly one nation, or was it a confederacy of sovereign and separate states? How could a country founded on the belief that “all men are created equal” tolerate slavery? In a national crisis, would civil liberties be secure?

UE Libraries provides an array of information services which underwrite the curricular and research programs of the University. Services range from traditional library collections and electronic full text databases to individualized reference assistance and library instruction. Information on most library holdings is available through the online catalog known as ACE which is accessible both on and off-campus.

UE Libraries' collections include more than 275,000 bound volumes of books and periodicals, access to 14,000 scholarly journal titles, 480,000 microform units, and access to an expanding array of online databases. Collections are supplemented by an active interlibrary loan service through which the resources of other libraries are made available to students and faculty. Circulation policies for students permit a renewable three-week loan for books. The Libraries also support study and teaching at Harlaxton College, the University's British campus, by providing access to most online databases available at the Evansville campus.
