American Periodicals Collection complete

Scholars of American history and culture now have an important online resource available: American Periodicals from the Center for Research Libraries, a digital collection of 375 popular and trade journals from the CRL collections. Digitized in collaboration with ProQuest, APCRL provides a window into everyday America from the 1850s to the 1920s, when economic and cultural forces converged to create a complex modern society. The collection contains a wealth of material on industrial development, new technologies, and innovations in transportation and communications. Researchers can explore such topics as: rationing of rubber and other resources during World War I; the impact of automobiles on urban planning; or changes in merchandising of hardware goods
