AM Explorer Primary Source Collection Now Available

The MU Libraries are pleased to announce a new two-year license for access to the entire AM Explorer online primary source collection from Adam Matthews. AM Explorer’s digitized archival collections are vast in geographical and temporal scope, and may be browsed by geography, genre, or subject. Even handwritten sources are searchable using handwriting analysis.

Collection titles include:

  • American Indian Newspapers;
  • Service Newspapers of World War Two;
  • Ethnomusicology: Global Field Recordings;
  • Gender: Identity and Social Change; and
  • many more.

Researchers and instructors are encouraged to search, explore and create high quality class projects based on these collections.

The MU Libraries’ AM Explorer license uses an innovative Evidence Based Acquisition model. At the end of the two-year license, librarians will assess usage and seek faculty input to purchase ongoing access to the most valuable collections for our campus.
