February 2016 Webinar Schedule

This month we are hosting three free webinars on two topics:

Frank Leslie’s Weekly

February 17th, Wednesday, 10am EST
February 18th, Thursday, 1pm EST

This 30-minute webinar will trace America’s development in the 19th and early 20th centuries through this complete collection of the nation’s first illustrated weekly. It will highlight every phase of the evolution of American popular culture over 70 years. In addition, the webinar will illustrate how the Weekly chronicles the nation heading into the catastrophic conflict between North and South, postwar industrial growth and the rise of cities, and the movement westward. By unlocking the immediate past scholars can better understand the events leading to our present day concerns and issues.

BROWSING IMAGE-ONLY AMERICAN COUNTY HISTORIES STATES

Accessible Archives has enhanced our State and County dropdown lists – that appear when the user clicks on American County Histories in the Publication Type or Source dropdowns – so that States which have available images but no searchable XML/text yet will display BROWSE ONLY in the County dropdown box. Users can then go to our Browse the Archives page to view available book images for the books that will be available for those States.
