National Endowment for the Humanities

National Endowment for the Humanities

Established over five years as a part of a successful National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant, this endowment supports the King Library's work to expand its humanities databases. Donors and contributors to the grant share a belief in the importance of the humanities and the role they play in society. Humanities databases provide access to critical information that can improve communications among diverse groups, spark creativity, and directly impact the quality of life in the global community. With the endowment's support the King Library has acquired the following databases to date: Orlando: Women’s Writing in the British Isles; The Johns Hopkins Guide to Literary Theory & Criticism, and The Brill Dictionary of Religion.
