Trial Access to American Periodical Series, 1740-1900

10 February 2008 by Donna McCrea

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.

    Ten thousand votes for this data base! Besides research for my own graduate classes, I can as an instructor see numerous applications for students. So much of what we think of as “new” is grounded in our historical past; for example, my research today revealed that concern for endangered North American languages and native peoples goes back to the 1850s, and much of the dialogue and debate was of course carried out in the news media of the time. Thank you for trial access to APS – I have a very short deadline today and it has saved me!

    This resource was extremely valuable for finding sources for my historian’s craft class.
