The UNH Library is pleased to announce the addition of several more databases with enhanced full-text for both primary sources and scholarly articles. And while these are especially helpful for students and faculty working in history, they are useful for research in other fields, as well.
One new source is the American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection (1691- 1837), which provides digital access to an unparalleled collection of American periodicals. The product of a partnership between EBSCO and the American Antiquarian Society, these collections contain over two million pages from some 1,500 periodical titles. The full text content is available through EBSCO’s Historical Digital Archive Viewer, which combines the experience of browsing and reading original sources with the convenience of keyword access, a variety of page views, note-taking capabilities, and numerous downloading options.
