The Readex NewsBank company has added a multiple database search feature that allows researchers to simultaneously search across the three Archive of Americana databases to which Auburn University Libraries subscribe.  The three databases include:

Early American Imprints, Series I, Evans (this database is a full-text digitization of the microform set, Early American Imprints, Series I (1639-1800), which was itself based on the American Bibliography of Charles Evans and enhanced by Roger Bristol's Supplement to Evans's American Bibliography.  Offers fully searchable text and a browse feature with topical indexes.  Evans Digital Edition makes available the full text of nearly every book, pamphlet, and broadside published during this period);

American State Papers, 1789-1838 (a major collection of U. S. federal government documents, the American State Papers consist of bound volumes of all reports, documents, and journals of the U. S. Senate and House of Representatives for the years 1789-1838.  The American State Papers are the predecessor to the U. S. Congressional Serial Set which begins with the 15th. Congress in 1817 and continues through the present.  The digitization of the Serial Set is being done in stages by the Readex NewsBank company and currently is available for the 15th. - 58th. Congress (1817-1904).  Eventually, this database will provide coverage through the 96th. Congress (1980);

and

U. S. Congressional Serial Set (a major collection of U. S. federal government documents, the U. S. Congressional Serial Set consists of bound volumes of all reports, documents, and journals of the U. S.
