Nineteenth Century Collections Online is a global digitization project working to make primary sources from the 19th century available to scholars around the world. These sources provide a personal look at an age of massive change and expansion, with the birth of industrialization and nationalism, increasing literacy and the growth of culture. 

Nineteenth Century Online provides cross-searchable digital archives of newspapers, maps, photographs, ephemera and more. The topical archives include "Asia and the West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange," "Photography: The World through the Lens" and "Science, Technology and Medicine: 1780-1925." Four more archives are scheduled for release in 2014.
