ProQuest’s Expansion of History Vault Opens New Perspectives on Pivotal Eras in American History
In 2013, ProQuest will open content that has been largely inaccessible to global researchers with a significant expansion of its acclaimed History Vault, a five-year program to provide central access to the key archival collections that document the most important and widely studied topics of 18th- through 20th-century America. Six new modules will surface documents that enable fresh insight into the Civil and Women’s Rights Movements, Immigration and World War II.
Other 2013 collections will provide the first digital access to the Women’s Studies Manuscript Collections from the Schlesinger Library, enabling researcher access to documents related to voting rights, national politics, and reproductive rights. U.S. Documents on World War II Planning, Operations, Intelligence, Axis War Crimes, and Refugees will release in November. Researchers will also have new insight into the evolution of law and American society through a module that captures American legal manuscripts from the Harvard Law School Library.
