Digitized Periodicals

Two excellent sources are available for reading historical Unitarian and Universalist periodicals online.

The Making of America Project of the Cornell University Library provides access to The North American Review and a short list of other periodicals that published articles by Unitarian and Universalist authors. Access is free to all.

American Periodicals 1740-1900 provides access to the extensive list of Unitarian and Universalist periodicals listed below. This resource is available within the Harvard libraries; outside the libraries with a valid Harvard ID and PIN; and in the libraries of many other U.S. colleges and universities. To search within a particular title, choose the "Search for Periodicals" option on the home page and search for the periodical title first.
