AAS is the “Academic Search of archive content”. With over 7,600 titles and more than 10 million pages, AAS is the most comprehensive set of periodicals in the world published between 1691 and 1877. It fills in the research gap for that essential time period and would infuse your researcher’s search results with a vast amount of primary source documents and relevant material. As a multi-disciplinary resource, it covers subjects such as Science, Medicine, Native Americans and African Americans, Law, Politics, and Government, Music and the Arts, Literature, Language, and Publishing, Agriculture, Business and Industry, Advertising and Marketing, Domestic Culture, Religion and Philosophy, Military, War, and Leisure. It is essential for any History and English department but covers so many other subject areas as well.
Primary source documents –including letters, speeches, conferences, proclamations, ledger accounts, announcements, voting extracts and more.
