Databases A-Z

  • Provides access to Harper's Weekly, the illustrated 19th and early 20th century "national newspaper," an important resource for examining America on a cumulative week-to-week basis from 1857-1912. Through this database one can discover news stories, illustrations, cartoons, editorials, biographies, literature, and advertisements that shaped and reflected public opinion of the times. This is an important primary resource for the study of the U.S. Civil War, and the era of reconstruction.

    This resource is being supported through collaborative efforts between the KU Libraries and the KU Parent’s Campaign.
