Nineteenth Century Collections Online is the most ambitious scholarly digitization and publication program ever undertaken, providing full-text, searchable content from a broad range of primary sources. Selected with guidance of an international team of experts, these primary sources are invaluable for a wide range of academic disciplines and areas of study, providing never before possible research opportunities for one of the most studied historical periods.
Nineteenth Century Collections Online: Science, Technology And Medicine, Part II, expands upon the subject coverage in Science, Technology And Medicine, 1780-1925, with an extraordinary gathering of European and British periodicals and American monographs from renowned sources. Collections include Natural History (500,000 pages of monographs from the Huntington Library); The Rise of Public Health in England and Wales (300,000 manuscript pages from the National Archives in England); and Academies of Science Publications (2 million pages of periodicals from Brill).
The archive supplements other published resources (such as The Making Of The Modern World, Parts I & II, and Sabin Americana, 1500-1926) and supports enhanced "scientific literacy." Using the archive, scholars will be able to analyze technical and conceptual dimensions of scientific knowledge---from physics to psychoanalysis to macroeconomics. Diversity of coverage ensures an expansive, integrated, global view of science and technology from a critical era of scientific development.
"The ranges of sources of all this material boggled my mind. Yes, some of it is from mainstream publications, but so much of it was from rare, hard-to-find sources that I gained an appreciation for the time and effort it’s taken to assemble these vast digitized collections."

"My review of the publisher’s ECCO (LJ 5/15/04) said, ’The contents, scope, and accessibility of the Eighteenth Century Collections Online are astonishing. Enthusiastically recommended for all academic, public, and research libraries serving serious literary scholarship.’ Gale is happily guilty of having another such paragon in the works. The rare material, the powerful yet uncomplicated search mechanism, and the added-value subject indexing stand out here. As the modules are released, all academic, public, and research libraries serving serious literary, historical, and interdisciplinary scholars should consider acquiring these archives."
