The Michigan Daily Digital Archives

Description

The Michigan Daily was founded in 1890 as a student-run organization, both financially and editorially independent from the University of Michigan. Three characteristics - editorial independence, daily publication, and broad ambition - have combined to make The Michigan Daily one of the most important university-based newspapers in American history. This archive, therefore, contains not only the record of day-to-day life and opinions of students, faculty, staff, and alumni for 125 years, but also an unparalleled window into the social and political history of 20th-century America. The archive contains every extant issue of The Daily, from its founding to 2014 - more than 300 volumes and almost 200,000 pages in print. It will be updated annually.

Translations of the Peking Gazette Online

Description

Translations of the Peking Gazette Online is a comprehensive database of approximately 8,500 pages of English-language renderings of official edicts and memorials from the Qing dynasty that cover China’s long nineteenth century from the Macartney Mission in 1793 to the abdication of the last emperor in 1912. As the mouthpiece of the government, the Peking Gazette is the authoritative source for information about the Manchu state and its Han subjects as they collectively grappled with imperial decline, re-engaged with the wider world, and began mapping the path to China’s contemporary rise.
