The Austin American Statesman from ProQuest Historical Newspapers
From January 3 through February 2, 2017, we have trial access to The Austin American Statesman from ProQuest Historical Newspapers.
As ProQuest describes it, "The Austin American Statesman archive includes searchable, full text coverage from the origin of the paper in 1871 as the Democratic Statesman, which was a semi-official organ of the state executive committee of the Democratic Party. It provides in-depth and acclaimed reporting on Texas’ reconstruction period, the development of Austin as a primary railroad hub of the American southwest, the founding and development of the University of Texas, the Austin Dam collapse and the evolution of Austin as the state capital.
Users can access editions of the Austin American Statesman cover to cover, exploring beyond articles to material that provides context and texture of the period, including advertisements, obituaries, editorials, cartoons, and photographs."
From August 25, 2016 until February 24, 2017, we have trial access to HeinOnline, a fully searchable, image-based government document and legal research database. It contains comprehensive coverage of U.S. statutory materials and more than 2,300 scholarly journals, all of the world’s constitutions, all U.S. treaties, collections of classic treatises and presidential documents, and access to the full text of federal case law.
We depend on your feedback in judging these trial databases.
