Suggestion to add time period of database coverage to our database descriptions

Having just helped a student who had been working from home on her research on Fannie Sellins, an early labor organizer who was murdered in 1919, I would like to suggest that we add the years of coverage of the databases to our main descriptions on the Newman Library homepage. The student had thought Factiva would be a good source for academic articles from the time period. I showed her the history subject guide which gives dates of coverage.
