Nineteenth Century U.S. Newspapers

The library is trialing the database Nineteenth Century U.S. Newspapers through October 30th, and we need your input to help us decide if we should add it to our collections.

Gale’s Nineteenth Century U.S. Newspapers — a full-text searchable, facsimile-image database — provides an as-it-happened window on events, culture, and daily life in nineteenth-century America. The collection features publications of all kinds, from the political party newspapers at the beginning of the nineteenth century to the mammoth dailies that shaped the nation at the century’s end. Every aspect of society and every region of the nation is found in the archive — rural and urban, large cities and small towns, and coast to coast. Includes major newspapers as well as those published by African Americans, Native Americans, women’s rights groups, labor groups, the Confederacy, and other groups and interests. Also included are illustrated papers that bring the nineteenth century to life through the drawings of many artists.

Access to the trial is available from the libraries’ A-Z Databases list and in the library catalog through October 30th.
