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.
