  • 3. Palmer's Full Text Online

    Palmer's Full Text Online provides an index to the London Times, with individual index entries linked to a scanned image of the article from the original Times. The search technology attempts to deal with historical variations in spelling and terminology--the user can enter a single word and choose to look for related meanings or variant spellings at the same time. Although indexing exists for October 1790 to December 1905, the full-text component spans only the years from 1800 to 1870. Full texts of all years are available on microfilm #149 in Memorial Library's Microforms/Media Center, Room 443. (Updated irregularly)

  • 8. Latin American Mortality Database (LAMBdA)

    The Latin American Mortality Database (LAMBdA) is a project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison that is directed by Dr. Alberto Palloni of the Department of Sociology. Originally created to support the empirical study of the history of mortality trends in Latin American countries after independence, LAMBdA now supports the study of very recent mortality trends and is particularly suited for the study of old age mortality during the post-WWII period. The database covers the interval between 1848 and 2014, it includes population censuses, age-specific (five year and single year age groups) total death counts (starting in 1900), and by causes of deaths (starting in 1945). It contains over 170 years of data, including adjusted life tables and a total of about 500 life tables. Adjustments are of two types: (a) for relative completeness of death counts and (b) for adult age misstatement. The adjustment procedures were chosen from a battery of 10-12 techniques that proved to be optimal (in the sense of mean squared error reduction) in extensive simulations that reproduced known or suspected sources of errors in the data. These adjustments are applied consistently across countries and years of observation. The resulting data are optimized for intertemporal and intercountry comparability. Please read the overview and the methods section for more details about the adjustments and the data. The Latin American Mortality Database is provided free of charge to all individuals who register to the site. Please do not pass your copy of these data to other users; instead, refer them to the LAMDBdA website where they can download the data for themselves. The database will continue to be updated and augmented with new data and products that will enhance the continuous study of mortality in these countries. The project is supported by research project grants from the National Institute

    The SORA project is an open access electronic journal archive and is the product of a collaboration between the American Ornithologists Union, the Cooper Ornithological Society, the Association of Field Ornithologists, the Wilson Ornithological Society and the University of New Mexico libraries and IT department. This archive provides access to an extensive Ornithological literature of international scope, and detailed material documenting the history of Ornithology in North America over the last 120 years. The content of this site includes the following titles: The Auk (1884-1999), The Condor (1899-2000), The Journal of Field Ornithology (1930-1999), The North American Bird Bander (1976-2000), Pacific Coast Avifauna (1900-1974), Studies in Avian Biology (1978-1999), and The Wilson Bulletin (1889-1999). Also available with browse-only capability is Ornithologia Neotropical; we hope to be able to index this journal soon, and include searching across its contents. We hope to be able to expand the content available as more Societies and journals join.
