Libraries give Penn State researchers access to 19th-century collections

Penn State students, faculty, and staff with an access ID now have access to more than 13,000 records for items in Nineteenth Century Collections Online, searchable in The CAT, the University Libraries online catalog, and through LionSearch, the Libraries federated search engine.

A Browse Title search of Nineteenth Century Collections Online will retrieve the items that are divided into four sub-collections:

• Asia and West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange;

• British Politics and Society;

• British Theatre, Music and Literature: High and Popular Culture; and

• European Literature, 1790-1840: The Corvey Collection.

Nineteenth Century Collections Online, a Gale/Cengage product, is a multi-year global digitization and publishing program focusing on primary source collections of the nineteenth century, with archives releasing incrementally beginning in spring 2012. The content is sourced from the world's preeminent libraries and archives and consists of monographs, newspapers, pamphlets, manuscripts, ephemera, maps, photographs, statistics, and other kinds of documents in both Western and non-Western languages. The collection offers authoritative content, trustworthy and extensive bibliographic information and technology that fits the needs of today's researchers.
