Four new online databases debut this Fall at the Meriam Library – Early English Books Online, HeinOnline, Global Market Navigator, and Times Literary Supplement Historical Archive.
Early English Books Online features facsimile reproductions of over 125,000 English language books published in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and British North America between 1473 and 1700. The Meriam Library has long held this collection in microfilm format, but the online collection offers important advantages, such as remote access, and the ability to search the contents of the entire collection. HeinOnline features an archive of the Congressional Record from 1789 to 2010, as well as an archive of the Federal Register from 1936-2014. Global Market Navigator is a collection of marketing reports covering 35 foreign countries from around the world and the thousands of consumer goods used in them. This is a Mintel product that complements the Library’s Mintel Academic database, which offers domestic marketing reports. Finally, the Times Literary Supplement (TLS) Historical Archive offers facsimile copies of every issue of the TLS published from 1902-2009. It offers reviews of books published in a wide range of subjects from all parts of the world, which makes it an essential resource for the study of literature and culture in the 20th and 21st centuries.
