American Antiquarian Society Collections

From March 5th through May 4th, we have trial access to two of EBSCO's subject-specific collections from the American Antiquarian Society, Periodicals of the British Empire and its Colonies, 1702-1879 and Periodicals of the American West, 1779-1881.

The former presents full text "literature of the British Empire, specifically focusing on colonial North America. Many of the periodicals were printed in Europe, Canada or appear as publications reissued in America. A few titles come from Asia." The collection "provide scholars with a unique insight into the colonies' complex relationship with European home countries as they developed their own identity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries."

The latter "draws from the publications that created the literary and cultural traditions of the Young America and Manifest Destiny movements" and "provides scholars with a unique snapshot into the ideas that fueled America's westward expansion."

This trial will be active until May 4th, so please explore these intriguing troves of historical primary sources, and let us know what you think.

From February 11 until May 8, 2015, we have trial access to the online version of Science, the prestigious and popular peer-reviewed general-science journal, whose articles consistently rank among the world's most cited research.

This trial will be active until May 8th, so please give it a try and let us know what you think.
