American Indian Histories and Cultures Digital Archive Debuts

The Newberry research library in Chicago and publisher Adam Matthew jointly created the American Indian Histories and Cultures digital archive, which launched recently as part of the ongoing partnership between the two institutions. The Newberry’s Edward E. Ayer Collection was the exclusive source of content for the new archive.

Adam Matthew, a SAGE Publications company, publishes historical primary sources in collaboration with libraries and other memory institutions to create digital social science and humanities collections. American Indian Histories and Cultures is available on Adam Matthew’s website; researchers can download a sample list of contents and sign up for a free trial on the site.

The archive highlights sources from the first European contacts with American Indians to the civil rights era, including manuscripts of treaties and speeches, newspapers from the 1960s–1990s, artwork, maps, and photos. Key among the features are interactive data maps, a detailed chronology, and contextual essays.

American Indian Histories and Cultures is a companion collection to The Newberry and Adam Matthew’s previous archive The American West, which uses sources from The Newberry’s Everett D. Graff Collection and is cross-searchable with the new archive.
