The Great Index to the Great Century

Students, scholars and historians no longer need to wade through countless printed indexes or scattered electronic files to explore historical literature. 19th Century Masterfile brings all the relevant materials related to pre-1930s scholarly content into a single source.

No history department is complete without access to this unparalleled resource.

19th Century Masterfile is populated with over 20 million full text links, permitting patrons to explore the materials via the finest scholarly-produced indexes and then link to all manner of full text editions in public as well as commercial information sites. These include ARTstor, JSTOR, American Memory, HathiTrust, Hein Online, Readex and other subscription-based services.

I have found 19th Century Masterfile invaluable for monographic studies, pointing me instantly to scores of relevant articles, exhibition reviews,and firsthand interviews. These were general interest periodicals–often journals I would never have thought to consult or had never even heard.
