About This Guide

This guide is based on an examination of 19th century serials in the collections of the Library of Congress that report on domestic and international commerce, tradeable goods, mining and manufacture, and finance. These periodicals contain detailed and extensive reporting of commercial activities around the globe as well as domestically. During the summers of 2013 and 2014, two interns, working under the direction of the Collections Development Officer for Business, examined a wide selection of these publications, reviewing them to identify relevant titles and describing their coverage. Their work was then reviewed, edited, and integrated by the Collections Development Officer to create this web-based finding guide, which complements the Business and Economics Research Advisor International Economics & Trade guide.
