New e-resources
American Broadsides and Ephemera (1749-1900)

This fascinating collection, built in partnership with the American Antiquarian Society, contains images of 30,000 printed documents that were intended to express views and share news publicly but not meant to be preserved. Examples include political notes, confessions, menus, handbooks, posters, advertisements, stock certificates, and more. Together they provide unique insights into American history and culture.
