Description:

The Making of America Project (last reviewed in the November 18, 1997 Scout Report for Social Sciences) now holds more than 10,900 volumes totalling approximately 3.1 million pages of text. this site is notable not only for its sheer size and utility, but also for its use of Optical Character Recognition technology, which presents users with a searchable scanned image of the actual pages of the nineteenth-century texts. Instructions are provided for those who prefer to view the (uncorrected) plain text versions. Both the journal and book collections may be browsed alphabetically (and chronologically in the former), searched by keyword, or searched by a number of advanced options, including boolean, proximity, frequency, and index searches.
