This page is a starting point for finding databases, websites, and other digital collections for United States History. Key resources include America: History and Life for scholarly articles and American Memory, the Library of Congress digital archive of primary source texts, historical photographs, sound recordings, videos, and much more. American National Biography is a source for 18,000 biographies on notable Americans from history, and the Oxford Companion to US History provides detailed, encyclopedic articles on all aspects of American history. America's Historical Newspapers is one of many newspaper archives, and HeritageQuest, which contains (among other things) searchable U.S. Census forms from 1790-1930, is just one example of a specialized historical data collection.
