Accessible Archives

From now until April 14th, the library is offering a trial of the historical newspaper database, Accessible Archives.  If you are looking for primary sources from the 18th and 19th centuries, look no further.  Browse individual newspaper titles such as The Pennsylvania Gazette or selected newspaper collections, like the African American newspaper collection.  Search across all of the titles for primary source articles that portray America’s biggest moments like the American Revolution and the Civil War from the actual eye-witnesses to history.  Results include the actual images of the source, as well as easily readable full-text.
