Third Periodical Series From American Antiquarian Society Joins EBSCOhost

EBSCO Publishing has released the third of five series from American Antiquarian Society (AAS) with American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection: Series 3. The series is part of a collection that provides digital access to what is by far the most comprehensive collection of American periodicals published between 1691 and 1877.

American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection: Series 3 provides more than 1,800 titles dating from 1838-1852. The themes in this third series reveal a rapidly growing young nation where industrialization, the railroads, regional political differences, and life on the western frontier were daily realities. The holdings, consisting of more than 1.5 million pages, are expansive, and many titles, both prominent and unique, can be found. The broad range of geography as well as a diversity of languages (French, German, and Welsh) in the collection reflects the rapid westward expansion that characterizes the time period of this collection.

American Antiquarian Society (AAS) Historical Periodical Collection: Series 3 is available through the EBSCOhost Content Viewer, specifically designed to meet the needs of scholars and researchers by enabling them to navigate historical content in new ways. The new interface was designed to allow researchers to navigate historical content in a manner that is fast, natural and preserves the serendipity involved in doing historical research. EBSCOhost Content Viewer replicates the experience of browsing and reading original archival material while also allowing users to explore, manipulate, collect, take notes, and export content.

EBSCO partnered with the American Antiquarian Society, one of the leading independent research libraries in the nation, in June 2008 to create the American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection.
