Just a reminder, only 4 more business days to register for the below PROQUEST historical periodicals database presentation either in person or via webinar. See below **

Please join Jo-Anne Hogan and Clay Boss, on Wednesday October 14, for a presentation of four databases from ProQuest's historical periodicals product line. Jo-Anne is a publisher with ProQuest's arts and humanities division,  where she has spent the last 7 years managing historical collections such as American Periodicals Series, Early English Books Online and Parliamentary Papers. She has an MLIS from the University of Western Ontario. 

The four databases are:

Periodicals Index Online (PIO) is the most comprehensive index for periodicals in the humanities and social sciences. PIO includes access to over 18 million articles from more than 6,350 scholarly, international journals spanning 300 years.  Coverage is complete runs of indexed titles from first issue to 1995 or the date that publication ceased.  No other digital index covers as many disciplines, is as broadly international in scope, and features as many languages.

Periodicals Archive Online (PAO) is an archival full text companion to PIO.  Users can search and view original page images for over 500 journals covering the period 1802 to 2000, comprising almost 2.7M full text articles and 14M article pages. 

American Periodicals Series (APS) is another full text collection highlighting the development of American magazine publishing.  APS features over 1,500 periodicals from colonial times to the advent of American involvement in World War II. Titles range from America's first scientific journal, Medical Repository, to popular magazines like Vanity Fair and Ladies' Home Journal. APS chronicles the development of America across 200 years.

American Periodicals from the Center for Research Libraries (APCRL) is our latest collection that will feature another 3M pages of periodical content.  Containing full-color scans of original documents archived by the Center for Research Libraries, this unique collection features labor, trade, literary, scientific, and photographic periodicals, as well as other historically-significant titles from the late 19th through early 20th centuries. 

This will be offered live onsite at the FLICC/FEDLINK Training Room at the Library of Congress Adams Building, 2nd Floor Room 216, 2nd & Independence Ave., SE, Washington, DC,  as well as via Webinar for those of you outside of the Washington, DC area.

 

Times are 9:30am - 11:30am EDT with a repeat at 1:30pm - 3:30pm EDT.
