About Smithsonian Collections Online
A result of Gale's partnership to create searchable archives of the Smithsonian's vast collections, this resource combines rare nineteenth and twentieth-century archival materials on topics such as the evolving modes of flight, World's Fairs, and trade literature, with recent and backfile issues of Smithsonian Magazine and Air & Space Magazine. This comprehensive resource presents unique insight into history, science, nature, the arts, innovation, technology, and world culture.
