Collection Overview

ProQuest History Vault debuted in 2011 and is continuously growing to include numerous archival collections documenting the most important and widely studied topics in 18th- through 20th-century American history. These modules are part of our five-year plan of more than 25 individual modules of rich and varied content that create a full spectrum of archival materials to complement coursework in many areas including African American studies, women’s studies, history, political science, and more. Institutions can build their collections over time to provide an unparalleled research experience for their students and faculty who would otherwise be unable to access materials held at geographically dispersed archives.
