The University of Missouri Digital Library has over three dozen digital collections, including those that focus on the Civil War and historical Missouri newspapers. One of the more recent additions is this archive of the American Railroad Journal. This publication was started in 1832, and it covered all aspects of the railroad industry for over 70 years. Taken as a whole, this archive offers a fascinating look into the dynamic growth of the railroad industry. Visitors can search the entire collection by keyword, or they can browse each issue. First-time users may wish to look through the issues in the 1830s, as they contain a range of articles that detail the key technological innovations during this time.
