Thomson Gale Launches Economic Literature Collection

Thomson Gale, a part of The Thomson Corp., launched The Making of the Modern Economy: The Goldsmiths'-Kress Collection of Economic Literature 1450-1850. The company said that the new digital collection, which was introduced at the ACRL conference in Minneapolis, is the most comprehensive collection in existence for the study of early economic, political, business, and social history and for researching the literature of economics from this period.

The online collection combines the strengths of two collections—the Goldsmiths' Library of Economic Literature at the University of London Library and the Kress Collection of Business and Economics at the Harvard University Graduate School of Business Administration—along with supplementary materials from the Seligman Collection in the Butler Library at Columbia University and from the libraries of Yale University.

The Making of the Modern Economy digital collection presents more than 61,000 books from the period 1460-1850, as well as 466 pre-1906 serials—totalling almost 12 million pages. Thomson Gale used its microfilm collection to create the new digital product. For more information, visit the product Web site at
