Available now, America’s Historical Government Publications
For one month only, we have trial access to America’s Historical Government Publications from Readex, a division of NewsBank, inc.
Until the 18th December 2015, you can access this historical collection of books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, government documents and ephemera printed in America over three centuries:
• American State Papers, 1789-1838
Legislative and executive documents, many originating from the important period between 1789 and the beginning of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set in 1817
• Senate Executive Journals, 1789 – 1980
Journals of the executive proceedings of the United States Senate 1789 to 1980, covering the first Congress through the 96th Congress.
• U.S. Congressional Serial Set, 1817 – 1994
Reports, documents and journals of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. This is the most accurate and complete replica available.
• Serial Set Maps
The maps published as part of U.S. Congressional Serial Set publications.
This trial complements our existing subscription to Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports, the United States’ principal record of political and historical open source intelligence.
You can access the trial through NUsearch, or directly from here.
We hope that you find this primary source material on the people, issues and events of American history and politics useful. Please send your feedback to email@example.com.
It won’t seem to let me log on. I’ve tried my university username/ password to no avail. This database looks really helpful and I’d love access before the trial ends. Any help please?
You’re quite right – in most cases, you can access our subscription databases from off campus by entering your university computer username & password when requested.
In the case of America’s Historical Government Publications, this product is only available for one month on a trial basis. As such it is only available on campus; I’m afraid that it’s not possible to access this database remotely.
I hope that you’re able to make good use of the database from on campus before the trial ends!
