This database covers the early voyages of European discovery through present day American imperialism. Empire Online combines facsimile representations of rare documents and books with scholarly articles written to elaborate and contextualize the documents. You can connect to the documents, books, and manuscripts through the articles, or go directly to them through searching or through browsing the lists by category. Primary source material falls into the following categories: Cultural Contacts, Literature, The Visual Empire; Exhibitions, Religion, Race, Class, Colonialism, and Imperialism. Additionally, Empire Online provides links to other Web sites with related primary source material. Faculty can make use of documents and essays in their courses by linking to URLS in syllabi or on Blackboard; images can be downloaded and saved. Connect to this database on campus or through "off campus access." [Link to this database through the library catalogHistory subject guide, or the the Libraries A to Z list.]
