AM Explorer subscription

Beginning July 2020, Atkins Library added a subscription to the Adam Matthew (AM) collections included in the AM Explorer platform. This includes access to many of the collections you have requested from the library for your courses and research. Every year, new collections will be added to our subscription.

To communicate the value of this resource and to secure continued access we need your feedback.

Incorporating AM collections into courses

This resource presents exciting new opportunities to engage students in primary source research. To brainstorm ways to incorporate Adam Matthew collections into your curriculum, assignments, or teaching, please reach out to your subject librarian. Librarians can also provide remote instruction to students on how to navigate this resource within a class session or individual research consultation.
