New Local History Resource From Alexander Street and Arcadia Publishing

Electronic publisher Alexander Street Press (http://alexanderstreet.com) and local history book publisher Arcadia Publishing (www.arcadiapublishing.com) announced the release of Local and Regional History Online: A History of American Life in Images and Texts. The collection includes hundreds of thousands of images and corresponding texts from every region and state in the U.S. and from many areas of Canada. It will grow to contain more than 1 million cross-searchable images, including photographs, postcards, maps, and other primary materials.

The collection is designed to serve many disciplines, showing the personal stories and photos of immigrants, laborers, and newsmakers; documenting the local architecture of homes and businesses; showing images of racism and tolerance; and delivering history as observed in real time. The collection should also prove valuable for public library patrons.

Local and Regional History Online can be browsed online for free at http://lrho.alexanderstreet.com. The collection is available to libraries via subscription or outright purchase of perpetual rights. Libraries can purchase the entire collection or select specific regional subsets. Individuals who are interested in accessing the collection should contact their university or public library for more information or to request trial access. A guided Flash video tour of the collection can be found at http://alexanderstreet.com/video/LRHO/demo.html.
