Discovering The Nineteenth Century: An Inside Look At The Development Of Gale's Nineteenth Century Collections Online Resource

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading research institutions and students continue to discover the benefits of Gale's Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO), a groundbreaking multi-year global digitization and publishing program that brings together rare materials – newspapers, maps, photographs and more – from the nineteenth century and beyond in an online research environment. NCCO not only offers users a wide-range of historical materials, it also takes a varied group working together – from curators and publishers to conservation workers – to bring NCCO to life. This infographic tells the story of NCCO from the scope of the materials, topics, dates and languages covered to the diverse group of partner institutions and professionals who help preserve this rare material and optimize it for research. Work continues on the next set of Archives 5-8 which will be available this year. The titles of the next Archives are:

  • Europe and Africa: Commerce, Christianity, Civilization and Conquest
  • Photography: The World Through the Lens
  • Science, Technology and Medicine, 1780-1925
  • Women: Transnational Networks

Since the first Archives launched nearly a year ago, more than one hundred and sixty institutions and counting from around the world have purchased access to NCCO. More than 1 million students now have access to the resource and have already logged nearly 3 million minutes in the product.
