NEW! Evans Digital Edition: American publications, 1639-1800

A new Libraries' acquisition is a academic time machine, transporting modern scholars into 161 years worth of colonial American books, broadsides, and other published works.

Evans Digital is a fulltext, online version of all the titles originally published in a microform set, Early American Imprints, Series I. Based on Charles Evans'; comprehensive American Bibliography, it will eventually include over 36,000 works. Evans Digital will make available, in Adobe Acrobat images, every book, pamphlet, and broadside published in the American colonies or the United States between 1639 and 1800.

Users may access Evans Digital from the front page of the Libraries website, either from the Library catalog or by following the path:
