New eresources: Proceedings of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions

We are delighted to announce that once again thanks to very generous donations, we now have access to two collections of US party convention records:

1876 Democratic National Convention (Cornell University Library)

The collections include the proceedings for the National Conventions of each party, providing gavel to gavel coverage of the conventions, including speeches, debates, votes, and party platforms. Also included are lists of names of convention delegates and alternates. Records of the earliest proceedings are based in part on contemporary newspaper accounts.

The collections are now available to access via SOLO or Databases A-Z. University members should use their single sign-on for remote access.
