Please note: Generally, this search engine will retrieve text only in the descriptions of collections, not in the collections themselves. This is because most (but not all) of the electronic collections available on the Five College site are available as images only. Certain collections, however, are available in ASCII text format and are therefore accessible by keyword search.
