Fifty new collections of full-text nineteenth-century magazines and journals

Thanks to LOUIS, the Louisiana state organization of trade school, college and university libraries, Loyola now has access to several thousand mostly nineteenth-century digitized, full-text popular magazines and scholarly journals.  They can be searched as a whole or in one of 50 subject collections.  They come from the collections of the American Antiquarian Society.

There are a few titles that go back to the late 1600s and some that come up to the very early 1900s.  This time period includes colonial history, the federalist era, the American Civil War, reconstruction, and the Gilded Age, up almost to World War I.  Publications cover topics like advertising, business, history, literature, science, medicine, women’s studies, food studies, Catholic, cultural and American studies, politics, Canadiana, music, religion, and education.  There are even non-English titles inside and beyond the U.S.  Dates of coverage differ for each magazine and for each of the 50 subject collections.  Try them now!
