Data Citation Index

Data Citation Index captures metadata from data repositories in the Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Arts & Humanities. Through linked content and summary information, DCI allows researchers to discover data across subjects and regions in one source as opposed to viewing data sets or data repositories in isolation. DCI currently indexes over two million data studies and data sets, with records which include authors, institutions, and keywords, and which are then connected to related peer-reviewed literature.

Coverage spans 1900 to the present

Early American Newspapers Series I, 1690-1876

Offers fully searchable, cover-to-cover reproductions from more than 700 historical American newspapers from 23 states and the District of Columbia printed between 1690 and 1876.

From Readex:
“Early American newspapers, often printed by small-town printers, documented the daily life of hundreds of diverse American communities, supported different political parties and recorded both majority and minority views. . . Early American Newspapers provides an unparalleled record of the topics, people, issues and events that have shaped America for nearly three centuries.

In Early American Newspapers, users can limit searches to items that fall into such categories as news and opinion, election returns, letters, poetry, legislative information, prices, advertisements, matrimony notices and death notices. An integrated interface allows researchers to cross search all of these series, as well as easily view, magnify, print and save digital images of articles and pages. Advanced search capabilities allow users to search by date, place of publication or article type; browse individual titles and more.”
