Southwestern Historical Quarterly online

The Southwestern Historical Quarterly's first 100 volumes are online at
Go to SHQ Online
Self-described as: "The Texas State Historical Association is pleased to present the first 100 volumes of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly, the oldest continuously published (since 1897) scholarly journal in Texas. This service will remain online free for an extended period, but will eventually become a benefit of membership in the Texas State Historical Association.

About the Southwestern Historical Quarterly Online

The Southwestern Historical Quarterly Online consists of more than 57,000 images of the pages of the first 100 years of the Quarterly as well as volume tables of contents and volume indices. The process of publishing the Quarterly Online involved locating printed copies of the 100 Volumes presented, unbinding them, scanning the 57,000 pages with a high resolution scanner, generating text via Optical Character Recognition or "OCR" software, encapsulating the document structure and text in approximately 2500 XML files used to produce the Tables of Contents and Indices, and compressing the 25MB page image files.
