The New England Farmer was one of the earliest agricultural journals established in the United States and the first and foremost in New England. It is a valuable source of information on the nature of agriculture and society in early nineteenth-century New England, a period of transition from the traditions of home production and processing to the requirements of commercial agriculture. Its coverage of issues such as the changing economy, fashion, temperance, and moral reform is of value to social historians in general.
Saint Peter’s University will soon meet the research needs and expectations of its library users with an integrated suite of ProQuest discovery services – the Summon® discovery service, the 360 Link link resolver and Syndetic Solutions™.
New research from ProQuest shows that social science faculty rely upon many other sources beyond scholarly journals for their research. ProQuest surveyed more than 200 social science faculty from around the world from a range of social science disciplines including sociology, social work, political science, economics, education, criminology and anthropology. There were few significant differences between business and social science researchers, confirming that a range of non-journal content is of crucial importance across a range of disciplines.
