Digitized Collections

The Nineteenth Century in Print: “The books in this collection bear nineteenth century American  imprints, dating mainly from between 1850 and 1880. They have been digitized by the  University of Michigan as part of the Making of America project, a major collaborative endeavor to  preserve and provide access to historical texts.  Currently, approximately 1,500 books are included in this American Memory site.  The collection is particularly strong in poetry and in the subject areas of education, psychology, American history, sociology, religion, and science and technology.”

American Memory Collection: “Comprising more  than 9 million items that document U.S. history and culture, American Memory  is organized into more than 100 thematic collections based on their  original format, their subject matter, or who first created, assembled, or  donated them to the Library. The original formats include manuscripts, prints, photographs, posters, maps,  sound recordings, motion pictures, books, pamphlets, and sheet music.”
