Making of America
aking of America (MoA) is a digital library of primary sources
in American social history from the antebellum period through reconstruction. The collection is
particularly strong in the subject areas of education, psychology, American history, sociology,
religion, and science and technology. The collection currently contains approximately 10,000 books
and 50,000 journal articles with 19th century imprints.
For more details about the project, see About MoA. Making of America is made
possible by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
New Additions: We have recently added a new feature, subject browsing. 99 more volumes focusing on New York City were added to MoA in June 2007. Digital conversion of the volumes was made possible through a gift from UM alumnus Lawrence Portnoy.
