The Making of America. MoA - a publicly-accessible online resource focusing on 19th century American publications - now contains over 3% of all American imprint monographs published in the 19th century (based on preliminary statistics provided by the Library of Congress). The majority of these materials were published between 1850 and 1876 and focus on topics ranging from the life and death of Abraham Lincoln to the latest 19th century household sciences to reflections on travel to the Western United States. The collection is particularly strong in the subject areas of education, psychology, American history, sociology, religion, and science and technology. MoA offers users the opportunity to view faithful replicas of the original source materials, perform full text searches over the entire collection, search within individual texts, and save searches and develop bibliographies using the MoA "book bag."
