Buffalo Full Text

We’re trying out Raindrop.io to share links to individual full-text works. But we’re also showing you where we research Buffalo in pre-computer online books & periodicals.

raindrop.io logoRaindrop has links to over 750 individual open access, full-text nonfiction Buffalo-related books, pamphlets, studies & periodicals that we found online. We regularly add to it. The icons at the top right let you choose how to sort and view the books.
Google Books logoWe pretty much live at Google Books. In 2004, they signed agreements with major libraries to mass-digitize books & periodicals. There are four levels of access: full text (the whole book); excerpt (a set of pages); snippet (a sentence or two); and no text (the page is a placeholder for if they do someday digitize the book).
HathiTrust logo
HathiTrust was created by a consortium of academic libraries to digitize their books & periodicals. Everything is full text, with lots of public domain material. You must belong to a member institution to download works that are still protected by copyright, though.
Internet Archive logoInternet Archive has full-text public domain books you can download, plus an e-book lending program. Anyone can upload works to Internet Archive.
Project Gutenberg logoGutenberg Project was the first online book site. Everything here is full-text and public domain.
University of Buffalo Libraries logoLastly, here’s an online book search engine built by our colleagues at the University at Buffalo that simultaneously searches the above sites and a few more.
