Paratext Adds Millions More Full-Text Links

Paratext (, an independent information company serving the global library market, has added more than 12 million links from its core research products-19th Century Masterfile (NCM) and Public Documents Masterfile (PDM)-to full-text resources, many in the public domain. These links, which will be fulfilled through Google Book Search and Google News Archive Search, include more than 1 million links to documents in The New York Times' archive.

Eric Calaluca, Paratext's CEO, says, "Discussions with our customers demonstrate that patrons value full-text access. However, we also know that key research sources may be difficult to locate or can go undiscovered without research finding aids-such as NCM, PDM, and Reference Universe. Each of the Paratext products includes multiple avenues to full-text, within the library's own collection and externally. We think that this offers the best of both worlds."

19th Century Masterfile (NCM) is an online index-based research database including metadata from Poole's Plus, along with detailed information pertaining to more than 70 seminal and obscure indexes to pre-1930 English-language publishing-including books, periodicals, government documents, and newspapers.

Public Documents Masterfile (PDM) is a cumulative source for locating, cataloging, and distributing government documents, published in the U.S. and worldwide. PDM is unique in its ability to provide federated searching of pre- and post-1976 Government Printing Office materials.
