Through October 29, 2010: American Periodicals Series Online

Hawaii Specialist Librarian Dore Minatodani reports that, for a limited time, the library has available a trial subscription to two online resources that are very useful for U.S. and Hawaiian historical research. Coverage goes back to the year 1740. Access is available only to UH-Manoa students, faculty, staff and affiliates, and requires a UH user-name and password; access is only available until October 29, 2010.

American Periodicals Series Online

American Periodicals Series Online contains over 1,100 periodicals that first began publishing between 1740 and 1900, including special interest and general magazines, literary and professional journals, children's and women's magazines, and many other historically-significant periodicals.

American Periodicals from the Center for Research Libraries

American Periodicals from the Center for Research Libraries is a full-text resource containing full-color scans of original documents archived by the Center for Research Libraries. The collection spans the nineteenth century through the dawn of the twentieth century, containing labor, trade, literary, scientific, and photographic periodicals, as well as other historically-significant titles.


When you access either of these resources, the default search option will have all of UHM's Proquest products pre-selected. It is best to instead limit your search to just these new resources, by using the "Select Multiple Databases" option, un-selecting everything, then selecting these two resources.
