Full-text links added to 19th Century Masterfile

Many Cornell historians know about 19th Century Masterfile, the online version of many standard 19th century periodical indexes, including Poole’s Index to Periodical Literature, 1802-1906, the Index to Legal Periodical Literature, 1786-1937, and the Royal Society’s Catalogue of Scientific Papers, 1800-1900.  But did you know that it has been adding links to a variety of full-text resources so that it is possible to move directly from index to the article or book?  Currently there are over 13 million links to full-text included in the index.  The most recent addition is 2.5 million links to titles included in the Hathi Trust database, which was described in this History@CUL posting.  Future plans include links to many of the items included in the ArtSTOR database of images.

19th Century Masterfile was always a useful resource, but with the addition of these full-text links, it has become even more important for any scholar of the period.  You can find its catalog record here, or connect directly from here.
