The Mansfield Library now offers access to the online database American Periodical Series (1741-1940). This resource 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. The database contains digitized images of periodical pages so original typography, drawings, graphic elements, and article layouts appear exactly as they were originally published.
The Library has also added the Washington Post Historical (1877-1992) with keyword searchable, cover-to-cover full-text and full-image access, including advertisements and photographs. Complete pages and individual articles are available as downloadable pdf files.
These databases can be located via the Databases A-Z listing on the Library’s homepage.
