American Antiquarian Society collection

This resource provides full-text access to over 6,000 periodicals from the collections of the American Antiquarian Society.

Online access to the American Antiquarian Society Historical Periodicals Collection is now available to the Rutgers community.

This resource provides full-text access to over 6,000 periodicals from the collections of the American Antiquarian Society. Most are from the later 18th and the 19th century and most are American, although titles from the British Isles and elsewhere are also included.

The database searches general interest and religious magazines, periodicals intended for women and children, and specialized publications in literature, science, agriculture, medicine, and other fields. It provides full-text access to poetry, short stories and serialized novels, as well as articles and some editorials, cartoons, and advertisements. The database is searchable by full text, author, article title, publication title, date, and, for some publications, by subject.
