The Images of America: A History of American Life in Images and Texts interface gives users access to page images of each page of each book. From a browse table or a search results page, clicking on the title of a work will take you to the cover with citation information and the table of contents of the book. From there, you can click the "show metadata" link to see all terms for which the book is indexed, or you can click on a link for a particular chapter or section of the book. Clicking on the link to a chapter will take you a thumbnail view of all of the pages within the book. The pages from the selected chapter will appear with a border. Selecting any thumbnail will open up that page in a separate image viewer window, where you can zoom in or rotate the image. Close the window to return to the thumbnail view.

Admin Alert: Our Platforms Are Now Updated with HTTPS

This past summer, Alexander Street began supporting HTTPS on its platforms (in addition to HTTP) to strengthen security and privacy of your information.

On January 2, 2018, all Alexander Street platforms will permanently transition from HTTP to HTTPS. Existing HTTP links will redirect to HTTPS when the transition occurs. Organizations that use proxies to access Alexander Street platforms will need to update links and certificates to support HTTPS.

This support article shows how to complete changes in proxy servers and provides answers to common questions. Even if you don't use proxies, you'll want to review and convert links to their HTTPS versions. (Note: Access to your Alexander Street content has not been impacted even if you haven't yet made the switch.)
Links will redirect from HTTP to HTTPS for some time to come, but we encourage you to do this important work today if you haven't already.
