Historical Broadsides Database

A broadside is a sheet of paper generally printed on one side only and typically used as a poster to announce some event, proclamation or other matter. The Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library at the University of Georgia Libraries holds a collection of more than 2,000 historical broadsides dated 1746-1980s.

This database serves as a finding aid for Hargrett's broadsides holdings and provides digital versions of most broadsides. The images provided are the property of the Hargrett Library. They may be used for personal study and instruction, but other uses require permission of the Library.
