Nineteenth Century Collections Online provides full-text, fully searchable content from a wide range of primary sources. Archives published in the program include works in Western as well as non-Western languages and are sourced from rare collections at libraries and other venerable institutions from around the globe.

McMaster currently has access to four collections:

Documents include government reports, diplomatic correspondence, periodicals, newspapers, treaties, trade agreements, NGO papers, and more, offering a detailed look at the inner workings of international relations.

Part II: British Politics and Society includes tens of thousands of primary sources related to the political climate in Great Britain during the “long” nineteenth century.

Part III: British Theatre, Music, and Literature: High and Popular Culture features a wide range of primary sources related to the arts in the Victorian era, from playbills and scripts to operas and complete scores. These rare documents, many of them never before available, were sourced from the British Library and other renowned institutions, and curated by experts in British arts history.

Part IV: European Literature, 1790-1840: The Corvey Collection includes the full-text of more than 9,500 English, French and German titles. The collection is sourced from the remarkable library of Victor Amadeus, whose Castle Corvey collection was one of the most spectacular discoveries of the late 1970s. The Corvey Collection comprises one of the most important collections of Romantic era writing in existence anywhere – including fiction, short prose, dramatic works, poetry and more – with a focus on especially difficult-to-find works by lesser-known, historically neglected writers.

Nonprofit Explorer is a free tool for researching the finances of over 600,000 nonprofit organizations. Most federal tax-exempt organizations in the United States must file an annual information return form with the Internal Revenue Service (i.e., IRS Form 990).

Each entry includes an organization's total revenue, expenses, liabilities, and assets for a given year. Revenue is further divided into contributions, program services, investment income, and net inventory & sales. Expenses such as executive compensation, professional fundraising fees, and other salaries & wages can also be noted. A percentage reflects each item's contribution to total revenue or expenses. When possible, links to an organization's full IRS 990 forms (in PDF) are provided, with some dating back to 2001.
