Library Databases For American Archives Month

by Daniel Holden on 2020-10-28T13:37:00-04:00 | Comments

Looking for historical newspapers, magazines, and other source materials?  The Library is here to help!                            

Use our historical newspapers guide for access to regional, national, and historic newspapers from our ProQuest and Accessible Archives databases.  Content spans from 1786 through the 2010's, depending on publication.  

Additionally, we have several magazine archives including The Atlantic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Ebony, Time, Forbes, Fortune, Life, and National Geographic

You can search the following database for even more content:

A full-text collection of over 6,500 historical periodicals from 1684-1912 bringing forth publications covering the sciences, medicine, education, agriculture, popular culture, churches, music and art, advertising, colleges and student publications, business and economics, slavery, westward expansion, and much more.
You can use these resources to search for topics of interest or browse by individual issues.  Look for a link (often in the banner running across the top of the screen) that lets you browse by publication.  From there, you can open and browse issues by their publication date. 

Need something different? Looking for historic documents, manuscripts, images, and other source materials? We have several digital archive collections from Adam Matthew Digital, broken out in several geographic/thematic areas.
