The SVA Library is re-trialing the Harper’s Bazaar Archive, the Women’s Wear Daily Archive, and the Women’s Magazine Archive from Proquest’s Fashion Studies package. These trials will be active through April 30th, and can be accessed from our A-Z Databases page. We previously trialed these databases in December 2015.
About Harper’s Bazaar:
The Harper’s Bazaar Archive is a comprehensive, searchable archive of every page, advertisement, and cover of every issue of Harper’s Bazaar from its first appearance in 1867 to the current month. Reproduced in high-resolution color page images and supported by fully searchable text and indexing, this resource provides access to a chronicle of 20th century American and international fashion, culture, and society, supporting researchers by offering a cultural lens into the modern era.
*Please note in the initial release of this database, coverage extends from 2015 back to 1969, and partial coverage from 1962. The full run of the magazine back to 1867 will be digitized sometime in 2016.
