      Making of America Collection Adds 7,000 Volumes

      The University of Michigan University Library is pleased to
      announce
      the addition of over 7,000 volumes to its Making of America
      collection. This expansion brings the total volumes available online
      to 8,500 or approximately 2.89 million pages of text and 1.15 billion
      words. The addition of these materials to Making of America was
      made
      possible in part through the generous support of The Andrew W.
      Mellon
      Foundation and an equipment grant from Sun Microsystems.

      Making of America (MoA) =96 a publicly-accessible online resource
      focusing on 19th century American publications =96 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 =93book bag.=94

      The Making of America is available freely over the Internet and may
      be
      found at: http://moa.umdl.umich.edu/. For additional information
