Historical coverage of the United States and Canada from prehistory to the present Mary Bagne, Managing Editor America: History and Life is a complete bibliographic reference to the history of the United States and Canada from prehistory to the present. Published since 1964, the database comprises over 450,000 bibliographic entries, providing an incomparable research tool for students and researchers of US and Canadian history. Whether your users are searching for information about the Sioux Indian Ghost Dance or labor movements in Canada, America: History and Life is a bibliography that can help them select the most important sources to consult. This extensive database covers over 2,000 journals published worldwide. In addition to covering all key English-language historical journals, America: History and Life coverage includes selected historical journals from major countries, state and local history journals, and a targeted selection of hundreds of journals in the social sciences and humanities. Over 90% of the articles included are published in English-language journals. The articles are abstracted by an experienced group of abstracters, most of whom are historians and librarians who are experts in the content of the journals they cover. All abstracts are written in English and are carefully edited for clarity and precision. America: History and Life on the Web also includes in-process English-language article entries (those entries for which abstract, subject terms, and chronologies are not yet available) prior to their completion and inclusion in the print and CD-ROM versions. In addition to articles, each year America: History and Life includes approximately 6,000 citations of book and media reviews from a selection of over one hundred key journals in US and Canadian history and related fields. The database also includes citations to abstracts of dissertations published in these areas. Each entry in the database is assigned appropriate indexing terms based on standard authorities, enabling users to find exactly the sources they require. Every year approximately 16,000 new entries are added to the America: History and Life database, so your researchers can keep up with the historical literature from the United States, Canada, and throughout the world.
