The Center for Research Libraries (CRL), the University of Chicago Library, and the ARTFL Project, (American and French Research on the Treasury of the French Language) have cooperated on a project to digitize pamphlets and periodicals from the French Revolution of 1848 held by CRL. The 1848 collection is comprised of over 100 pamphlets and periodicals from 1848 to 1851. Currently, one can search the database by title and by call numbers (the call numbers have been provided by CRL). The pamphlets and periodicals are not separated in the search database; thus, a given title search will provide the titles of all pamphlets, and periodicals which have that title in the database. Once a particular entry has been chosen the page image will appear on the screen. The size of the page image can then be made larger or smaller.
