Nineteenth Century Short Title Catalogue (NSTC) is an unparalleled database that provides an exhaustive bibliography of over 1.2 million records for the 19th-century holdings of eight of the world's top research libraries. It covers virtually all printed materials published in the U.S.and the British Empire from 1801 to 1919.
NSTC offers unlimited access to the age of groundbreaking literature (Dickens, Twain, James); philosophy (Thoreau, Mill, Emerson); science (Darwin, Nature, Scientific American), and more. It records not only works in English but in Celtic, Gaelic, French, Welsh, and various languages from the British Empire, as well as texts translated for use by missionaries into rare and even extinct languages.
All relevant materials in the Bodleian Library, British Library, Cambridge University Library, Trinity College(Dublin), National Library of Scotland, and Newcastle University Library are recorded in NSTC, plus Library of Congress and Harvard University Library holdings from 1816 to 1919.
Bibliographic records include author and author epithet, imprint (including date and place), library location, subject classification, and reference number. Users can group records of special interest and download the entries electronically.
