USC researchers interested in late 18th century and 19th century topics now have access to the American Periodical Series from their homes and offices.
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. With the digitized page images researchers can see all of the original typography, drawings, graphic elements, and article layouts exactly as they were originally published. In addition, a Search for Periodicals function in APS leads to bibliographic information and a summary of the historical significance of all the periodicals represented in the database.
Acquired by the University Libraries with generous contributions from the Department of History in the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, USC-Columbia.
