New library database: American Periodical Series Online

The Katharine Brush Library just added a new database, American Periodicals Series Online (APS), to its collection. This database will be an important resource for students with U.S. History topics looking for primary sources from the early colonial period to about 1910.

APS includes digitized American magazines and journals published from colonial days to the beginning of the 20th century. Titles range from Benjamin Franklin’s General Magazine and America’s first scientific journal, Medical Repository; popular magazines such as Vanity Fair and Ladies’ Home Journal; regional and niche publications; and groundbreaking journals like The DialPuck, and McClure’s. There are a total of 1,500 publications in this database.

We hope that students will find this database useful for their research.
