Scientific American Illustrations Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Under sponsorship of the American Antiquarian Society, this ongoing project has established and maintained an internet database of illustrations in Scientific American between 1845 and 1870, an extraordinary resource of well over 6,550 inventions patented and displayed in these years. The previous IQP groups established a website to allow access to this database, and as the eighth group to have participated, this team scanned the database for errors, identifying the issues not included in searches on the website. This team also created a spreadsheet of the website's information, with particular attention to analyzing the types of inventions which can be found in the shared drive for this project.
