New Database: European Views of the Americas

This new bibliographic database is a valuable index for scholars and individuals interested in European works that relate to the Americas. It's a product from EBSCO Publishing in cooperation with the John Carter Brown Library. The database is created from European Americana: A Chronological Guide to Works Printed in Europe Relating to the Americas, 1493-1750, the authoritative bibliography that is well-known and respected by scholars worldwide.

The database contains more than 32,000 entries and is a comprehensive guide to printed records about the Americas written in Europe before 1750. It covers the history of European exploration as well as portrayals of Native American peoples. A wide range of subject areas are covered; from natural disasters to disease outbreaks and slavery. The original bibliography was co-developed by John Alden and Dennis Landis, Curator of European Books at The John Carter Brown Library. The John Carter Brown Library, founded in 1846 is a foremost repository of rare books and materials and is a center for advanced research in history and the humanities.

Links to this database are available on the library's alphabetical database list, the Research Tools page, and the database description page.
