With nearly 1,600 titles from all 50 states, 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.

Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO) is a database of primary source collections for the 19th Century, primarily British and American, but including material from other nations and in other languages.  Unlike comparable collections for earlier periods (Early English Books Online and Eighteenth Century Collections Online), NCCO is selective, including not all publications from the period, but thematic groupings of materials, called Archives (most of which have multiple sub-collections).

Childhood Studies is international and cross-cultural in scope, transcending narrow geographical confines and analyzing modern and historical childhoods both locally and globally. The peer reviewed articles in this resource are written by eminent scholars in the various disciplines that comprise "Childhood Studies." Areas of coverage include topics in the humanities, social sciences, health sciences, public policy, as well as law and ethics. Researchers and practitioners at all levels need tools that help them filter through the proliferation of information sources to material that is reliable and directly relevant to their inquiries. Oxford Bibliographies in Childhood Studies will offer a trustworthy pathway through the thicket of information overload.
