Dr. Eran Shalev, Department of History, Haifa University and author of Rome Reborn on Western Shores: Historical Imagination and the Creation of the American Republic writes:
"I cannot tell you how much the Readex historical databases have helped me over the years in my research and writing. Early American Imprints and Early American Newspapers have become integral to the way in which I write and conceptualize. And the new Supplements from the Library Company will be another valuable addition to the Archive of Americana.
"As much as I cannot think of writing without a word processor, it is impossible for me to envision historical research before Readex's digital editions. These collections are especially crucial for scholars working from outside of the United States."Have Readex digital collections been valuable for your own research or for research by students and faculty at your institution?
