APS Online contains digitized images of the pages of American magazines and journals that originated between 1741, when Andrew Bradford’s American Magazine and Benjamin Franklin’s General Magazine were launched, and 1900. Eventually it will provide more than 1,100 periodical titles in full page images. It derives from the American Periodicals Series microform collection (sometimes referred to as APS I, APS II, and APS III). For periodicals that began publication before 1900 and continued into the 20th century, the cut-off date is 1940.
The 19th-century content of this database is indexed by C19: The Nineteenth Century Index.
