Maybe some will remember Dr. King's speech in Fort Wayne on June 5, 1963? Two News-Sentinel articles by Kevin Kilbane provide some details of this event. King's Words Echo Long After His 1963 Fort Wayne Speech appeared in the January 15, 2001 News-Sentinel. And Dr. King's Visit to the City Sparked Energy was published in the January 14, 2000 issue. You can read these articles by using our new OneSearch service. Type in the titles for the articles and limit to Magazines/Newspapers (or do an Advanced Search and choose NewsBank) and it should appear in the NewsBank results.

You do have to be in the library though to read the newspaper articles. Sorry.

Oh, I thought library users could now access online databases outside of the library by typing in their library card number. Just some of them are available that way?

Most of our databases can now be accessed from home via One Search, as long as they have a valid library card. Due to licensing restrictions, there are a few which we are unable to offer outside of the library.
Those databases which must be used in the library are:, D&B Million Dollar Business Database, Heritage Quest, Morningstar, New England Ancestors, NewsBank, RDS Business Suite, and World Geography.
