Trial Database – AAS Historical Journals

American Antiquarian Society (AAS) Historical Periodicals Collection. (after clicking on this link, click the yellow Continue button to search all five parts of this collection.)  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.

Immigrants@Bard is a collaborative library workshop aimed at introducing students to library research and resources in an experiential way. Tapping into Bard’s rich history of welcoming and supporting immigrants, students work in teams to research prominent immigrant artists, scientists, and intellectuals who have historical ties to Bard as students or faculty. Using the information found in books, articles, and references sources, students create a digital plaque honoring the immigrant they researched. The session wraps up with presentations of the plaques along with a group discussion of the research process and which sources students found most useful for this purpose. Returning students can see the results of this program in the lobby of the library for the next couple weeks. Please come and share your own immigrant story!
