Our trial of Accessible Archives has been extended until 31st October 2011.
To access this trial go to http://www.accessible.com/. For off-campus access use Apps Anywhere (IE8 or IE9 in the Web or Office folders). If we subscribe we will arrange access through EZproxy as normal.
Developed by instructors and students of American history, Accessible Archives' databases contain the rich, comprehensive material found in leading historic periodicals and books. Eyewitness accounts of historical events, vivid descriptions of daily life, editorial observations, commerce as seen through advertisements, and genealogical records are available in a user-friendly online environment.
For full details of the Accessible Archives collections and their constituent parts, see http://www.accessible.com/accessible/archives.jsp.
After trying these databases please leave your comments below specifying which collection(s) and/or part(s) you are referring to. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.
