Trial: AAS Historical Periodicals Collection

EBSCO has partnered with American Antiquarian Society (AAS), the premier library documenting the life of America's people from the Colonial Era through the Civil War and Reconstruction, to provide digital access to the most comprehensive collection of American periodicals published between 1684 and 1912.

The fifty thematic subsets from AAS Historical Periodicals include digitized images of the pages of American magazines and journals not available from any other source and provide rich content detailing American history and culture from the mid-18th century through the late-19th century. These specialized collections cover advertising, health, women's issues, science, the history of slavery, industry and professions, religious issues, culture and the arts, and more.

While the focus is American history, it has some collections of interest to those studying Canadian history, colonialism, women's history, and indigenous studies. For example:

  • Canadian Periodicals, 1790-1877
  • Periodicals of the British Empire and its Colonies, 1702-1879
  • Women's Periodicals of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century, 1733-1844
  • Missionary and Charity Periodicals, 1793-1902
  • Periodicals of the American West, 1779-1881
