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.
