New Database: British Literary Manuscripts Online

MU Libraries is pleased to provide access to British Literary Manuscripts Online.

British Literary Manuscripts Online provides facsimile images of literary manuscripts, letters, diaries, drafts of poems, plays, novels, and other literary works. Images of the complete manuscript can be viewed, manipulated and navigated on screen, but text of the manuscripts themselves is not searchable. We have access to both parts: Medieval and Renaissance, and c. 1660-1900. This site also provides links to related resources, including paleography courses, images, maps, bibliographies, and digital scholarship.

If you have questions about the database or how to use it, contact your librarian at ask@missouri.libanswers.com.

New Items Added to HathiTrust

In 2021, one of the many projects that the Digital Services Department handled was the preparation and upload of items into the HathiTrust Digital Library. Before Felicity Dykas retired, she was able to add over 120 items to our English Short Title Catalog Items collection, which brings the current total to 940!

Starting in September, other staff members were able to continue uploading items, starting with a small batch of rare manuscript leaves that had been donated to the University. We also added around 40 journalism typography books. We now have 56 items added to our Typography Collection in HathiTrust, with several more waiting. In the past few years, we have submitted 2, 221 items in total!

Adding items to the HathiTrust repository is an ongoing project, and we intend to add many more items in 2022. Stay tuned!

Below are a number of links for those interested in checking out what we added last year;

HathiTrust Temporarily Offers Expanded Access to Digitized Books

We are pleased to announce that the University of Missouri Libraries now has an additional route for faculty, staff and students to access library books while our doors remain closed. The HathiTrust Digital Library’s Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS) is now activated! This allows our users temporary online access to some materials from our print collection.

Here is some important information about using the HathiTrust Digital Libary:

  1. Login with your university ID to see the temporary access materials.
  2. To activate temporary access once logged in you need to click “check out.”  The loan lasts one hour but can be  renewed as long as another user is not trying to access the same material.
  3. Temporary access only permits downloading one page at a time.
  4. Additonal materials (that are not under copyright) with full-text access are always available through HathiTrust. Those items are indicated by “full text” rather than “temporary access.”
  5. Full-text access allows downloading of the entire book.

You can watch this video for help.

For more information see HathiTrust’s ETAS: Information for Users. For your convenience, this and other temporary resources are listed at Open Educational and Research Resources: Complimentary Publisher and Vendor Access During COVID-19 Outbreak.

For more information or assistance finding these and other materials during the library’s building closure, use our Ask a Librarian service or contact your subject specialist.

State Documents Detail Missouri Beer Production and Consumption from the 1930s to the 1970s

While their covers and titles can be on the generic side, annual reports of State Agencies are filled with interesting information that can be hard to find anywhere else. A great example of this is the Annual Report of the Department of Liquor Control of the State of Missouri, which has chronicled the production and consumption of alcohol in the Show-Me State for four decades.

The Missouri Department of Liquor Control was established in 1934 with two major functions, the collection of revenue and law enforcement. As such, their annual reports are filled with statistical tables detailing how much beer, wine and liquor was produced in and shipped out of Missouri each year, per capita consumption, types of violations charged and more.

The links below contain samples of some of these fascinating tables from 1938 to 1968, including how many millions of gallons of liquor, beer and wine were consumed per year:

If this just wets your whistle and you want to learn more, visit Government Documents in Ellis Library.
