ProQuest to Launch Historical Statistical Resource

By Africa S. Hands

From ProQuest:

Historical Statistical Abstracts of the U.S. digitizes more than 130 years of Statistical Abstracts of the U.S., extracts the tabular content, and converts it into an Excel format, making these annual collections of data on the United States and its people easy to search and access.

ProQuest is also expanding its renowned Historical Newspapers program with the addition of 39 years to the historical Atlanta Constitution collection. As the only major daily in this capital of the American south it provides an essential chronicle of the political, economic, cultural, and social life of this important region – one that is unfiltered by time. Newly digitized and accessible via precision search technology are the tumultuous years from 1946 through 1985, bringing total access to the full text of all editions of the Atlanta Constitution published between1868 and1985.
