New Digital Resources Added

The Libraries have added the following digital resources:

Jstor Arts and Sciences XII

Adding to our already substantial Jstor collections, Jstor  12 includes Language & Literature, Art & Art History, Philosophy, and Religion. Represented subdisciplines span topics as diverse as European church history and the literature of the American West. The collection offers a global scope; European countries including Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands each contribute several titles, with an additional title published in South Korea, the Journal of Korean Religions.

C19 the Nineteenth Century Index

C19 Index draws on the strength of established indexes such as the Nineteenth Century Short Title Catalogue (NSTC), The Wellesley Index, Poole’s Index, Periodicals Index Online and the Cumulative Index to Niles’ Register 1811–1849 to create integrated bibliographic coverage of over 1.7 million books and official publications, 70,000 archival collections and 22.7 million articles published in over 2,500 journals, magazines and newspapers. C19 Index now provides integrated access to 13 bibliographic indexes, including more than three million records from British Periodicals Collections I and II.   This title provides indexing but does not include full text content.  It replaces the 19th Century Masterfile.

Sabin Americana

Digital library of works written or published in the United States, as well as items printed elsewhere, that document the history of the Americas from 1492 to the 1926.

Medieveal and Early Modern Sources Online – MEMSO

Medieval and Early Modern Sources Online (MEMSO) is a digital library of historical sources for the history of Britain and Ireland in the medieval and early modern periods to the late 18th century. The collection is principally from the major collections of governmental records of England, Scotland and Ireland published during the nineteenth century, such as the Calendar of Close Rolls, Calendar of Patent Rolls, and Calendars of State Papers, Domestic and Foreign. These texts are fully searchable, and for many there are links to manuscript images from the UK National Archives, Kew.

SAH Archipedia

SAH Archipedia is an interactive, media-rich online encyclopedia of American architecture developed by the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) in collaboration with the University of Virginia Press. Over 13,000 building histories, photographs, maps, and essays from the Society’s award-winning Buildings of the United States series are available online.

Special Collections and University Archives publishes 100th finding aid

Special Collections and University Archives is pleased to announce the publication of the department’s 100th finding aid. A “finding aid” is a discovery tool that assists researchers in identifying archival and manuscript collections that may assist them in conducting their research. In many ways, finding aids are to the collections in Special Collections and University Archives what the Libraries’ online catalog is to rest of the Libraries’ holdings. A current listing of all available finding aids is available via the “Finding Aids” link on the Special Collections and University Archives homepage.

The department’s 100th finding aid is for the records of the Philomathesian Society (collection number A1159). The Society was the first student organization of the Hamilton Literary and Theological Institute, the precursor to today’s Colgate University. Formed in 1821, the Society offered, in the words of former archivist Howard D. Williams, “[...] training in public speaking, maintenance of a library, correspondence with missionaries and with similar organizations on other campuses, and an ‘inquiry into the most eligible fields of ministerial labor.’” At just 0.2 cubic feet the collection is one of the smallest in the University Archives, but its importance to those studying the history of Colgate, the role of students in 19th-century higher education, the birth of college libraries, the social life and customs of 19th-century male students, and a host of other topics, is undeniable. The collection was processed by Processing Archivist Allyson Smally. Visitors may work with this and many other collections in the Special Collections and University Archives reading room on the second floor of Case Library and Geyer Center for Information Technology during our regular open hours (Monday through Friday 1-5pm, and Monday and Tuesday evenings 7-10pm).
