Making of the Modern World - 61,000 items now listed in SAULCAT

The 61,000 primary source documents and books included in The Making of the Modern World Part I: The Goldsmiths’-Kress Collection, 1450-1850 database - a recent perpetual-access purchase - have now been listed individually in SAULCAT! 

The Making of the Modern World is the most comprehensive collection in existence for the study of the social, political, business and economic history of the western world, from the mid-15th to the mid-19th century. 

Drawn from two pre-eminent collections - The Goldsmiths’ Library of Economic Literature at the University of London and The Kress Collection of Business and Economics at the Harvard Business School - this unrivalled online library fully documents the dynamics of Western trade and wealth that shaped the world during this time.

It offers many new ways of understanding the age of exploration and discovery; global trade; the Industrial Revolution and the development of modern capitalism; banking; finance; transportation and manufacturing; slavery; colonization; the Atlantic world; social history; gender, etc. 

In many ways, MMO Part I is an extension and expansion of Eighteenth Century Collections Online.
