Title: The Core Historical Literature of Agriculture PDF
Url: https://digital.library.cornell.edu/collections/chla
Publisher: Albert R. Mann Library
Description: This highly valuable research Website provides "a core electronic collection of agricultural texts published between the early nineteenth century and the middle to late twentieth century." Currently, the site holds 846 monographs comprising over 315,766 pages covering subjects such as "agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, animal science, crops and their protection, food science, forestry, human nutrition, rural sociology, and soil science." The archive can be searched or browsed with results giving access to a complete bibliographic citation in hypertext as well as the online version of the document. Users can access the document by page number from its individual table of contents. Each text also provides simple, Boolean, or proximity searches for researchers looking for specific references and topics. The authors claim that "United States history cannot fully be understood without studying its rural life and agricultural heritage," and even a quick browse through the variety of titles in this collection appears to substantiate this claim.
