Since the announcement of www.inthefirstperson.com, Alexander Street's newest, free database, the company has received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from librarians around the country:
"We are linking this database from our libraries' web page.
It is a wonderful contribution to scholarship. The product not only makes these materials accessible from one place, but the quality of the indexing and file structure - information on the repositories and collections as well as each item - seems to be expertly done. My compliments. And our thanks for the creative pricing!"
--Mildred Franks, Reference Librarian, University of Louisville
"Thank you and Alexander Street Press for the free database. We have done a little poking around and it really looks useful. We will probably put it on our database page, the info being unique, timely and worthy. We think you make excellent and unique products. We hope to own more in the future."
--Gloria Selene Hinojosa, Collection Development Librarian,
Texas State University, San Marcos
"Thank you for this welcome news! I have taken a brief look and this looks like a really nice database. I plan on getting it mounted on the database listings on my library's homepage and will inform my colleagues and the History faculty as well. Thanks for making this resource available for free!"
--Tim Dodge, Auburn University
