New Database addition @ WKU Libraries

19th Century Pamphlets Thanks to a generous donation from WKU History Professor Dr. Carol Crowe-Carraco in memory of her parents, WKU Libraries has now added a new JSTOR Database: the19th Century British Pamphlets Collection.

This project, conceived by the Research Libraries UK (RLUK) and funded by the JISC Digitisation Programme, preserves and provides online access to more than 20,000 British pamphlets from the 19th century held in UK research libraries. Pamphlets were an important means of public debate in the 19th century, covering the key political, social, technological, and environmental issues of their day. They are a valuable primary resource relevant to a wide range of disciplines. They have been underutilized within research and teaching because they are generally quite difficult to access – often bound together in large numbers or otherwise hard to find in the few research libraries that hold them. JSTOR has made these pamphlets searchable alongside current collections to enhance discovery and use across disciplines. Topics in the collection range from Medicine to Colonial Reports to British views of the American Civil War.

The database is integrated into JSTOR and can be searched by itself through the “Advanced Search” or by a general search.

  4. If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.
