Primary Sources

Accessible Archives: Primary Source Material from 18th & 19th Century Periodicals (ASU Users)

Accessible Archives was founded in 1990 to make available vast quantities of archived historical information, previously furnished only on microfilm. In pursuit of this vision, primary source material has been selected to reflect a broad view of the times, and has been assembled into databases with a strict attention to detail allowing access to specific information with pinpoint accuracy.  The database provides full text access to the following collections/journals/newspapers:  African American Newspapers (19th Century); American County Histories to 1900; The Civil War: A Newspaper Perspective (1860-1865); Godey`s Lady`s Book (1830-1885): The Liberator (1831-1865); The Pennsylvania Gazette (1728-1800); The Pennsylvania Genealogical Catalogue: Chester County (1809-1870); The Pennsylvania Newspaper Record: Delaware County (1819-1870); and The South Carolina Gazette (1732-1751).
