The Mansfield Library is providing Trial Access — through March 31, 2008 — to the database American Periodical Series Online, 1740-1900. APS Online features over 1,100 periodicals spanning nearly 200 years – from colonial times to the advent of American involvement in World War II. Titles range from America’s first scientific journal, Medical Repository, to popular magazines like Vanity Fair and Ladies’ Home Journal. Because the database contains digitized images of periodical pages, researchers can see all of the original typography, drawings, graphic elements, and article layouts exactly as they were originally published.
The database can be located via the Databases A-Z listing on the Library’s homepage.
