Gale, part of Cengage Learning and a leading publisher of research and reference resources for libraries, schools and businesses, today announced the launch of the next four archives in its Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO) program, a multi-year global digitization and publishing program that brings together rare primary source materials from the nineteenth century and beyond. The launch of the new archives brings the total number available in the NCCO program to eight, and the total number of collections within the resource to more than 170. Gale partners with more than 80 institutions from around the world to bring NCCO to life, and the list is growing.

“The nineteenth century is one of the most-studied historical periods, and by providing a variety of rare, and cross-curricular content in NCCO, we are enabling researchers to make revolutionary discoveries about one of the most transformative periods in our history,” said Jim Draper, vice president and general manager, Gale. “Like its predecessor, Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO), NCCO has quickly become the essential resource for any institution looking to provide its students and faculty with the ability to perform innovative historical research.”

The new NCCO archives cover a variety of topics and have been brought together with the help of an expanded advisory board that includes specific subject matter experts. The newly launched NCCO archives include:

• Europe and Africa: Commerce, Christianity, Civilization, and Conquest This archive documents the motivations, activities and results of the European conquest of Africa by bringing together monographs, manuscripts, and newspaper accounts covering key issues of economics, world politics, and international strategy.
• Photography: The World Through the Lens The invention of photography initiated a mania for explorers, artists, scientists and ordinary people to document their surroundings. This archive assembles collections of photographs, photograph albums, photographically-illustrated books and texts covering remote places, the landscapes of the American West, scientific records of archaeological digs and anthropological studies, police photography, images of war, images of the urban and rural poor, and more. The archive covers the subject from key points of view: photography as a technical process; photography as an art form; photography as documentary evidence; and photography as an information type.
• Science, Technology and Medicine, 1780-1925 The period is characterized by industrial, technical and social revolution. With a changing society came new approaches to the study of natural history, physics, mathematics, medicine, and public health. This interdisciplinary collection consists primarily of journals and monographs and major topics covered include: electricity and physics, the Darwinian revolution and global reception of evolution, civil engineering, mathematics and the social history of American medicine.
• Women: Transnational Networks The collection contains information on European and North American movements, but also includes collections from other regions. Using a wide array of primary source documents serials, books, manuscripts, diaries, reports, and visuals this archive focuses on issues at the intersection of gender and class from the late eighteenth century to the era of suffrage in the early twentieth century, all through a transnational perspective.
