AM scoops two ‘Best Reference Picks’ in Library Journal’s annual list

Library Journal has named The Gilded Age and Progressive Era and Mass Observation Project in its annual Best Reference Picks. 

Announced in this month’s issue, we are delighted and proud to have two collections selected by the LJ committee as best database winners.

We’re thrilled to have two collections selected as Best Reference Picks by Library Journal. It’s a prestigious award that really recognises the careful editorial practices we employ here at AM, from the great relationships we have with archives and libraries around the world, to the consideration given to how students and researchers use our resources.
