New Historical Database Trial--Early American Newspapers and Early American Imprints from Readex


For the month of October, the Marx Library is offering students, staff, and faculty a trial of Readex's Early American Newspapers and Early American Imprints. 

Early American Newspapers, Series 1 1690-1876 "enables researchers to explore essential newspapers from 23 states and the District of Columbia. Series 1 offers 340,000 fully searchable issues from over 730 historical American titles. Focusing largely on the 18th and early 19th centuries, this online collection is based on Clarence S. Brigham’s “History and Bibliography of American Newspapers, 1690-1820” and other authoritative bibliographies. The core of the Readex digital collection consists of American Antiquarian Society (AAS) founder Isaiah Thomas’ own collection of colonial and early national period newspapers and is supplemented by issues added by Thomas’ successors at the AAS." 

Early American Imprints, Series I: Evans, 1639-1800 "has been hailed as the definitive resource for researching every aspect of 17th- and 18th-century America. This incomparable digital collection contains virtually every book, pamphlet and broadside published in America over a 160-year period. Digitized from one of the most important collections ever produced on microform, Early American Imprints, Series I is based on Charles Evans’ renowned “American Bibliography” and Roger Bristol’s supplement. Including more than 36,000 printed works and 2.3 million pages, Series I also offers new imprints not available in microform editions."
