Please visit: http://www.foresthistory.org/Research/databases.html FHS databases provide useful, detailed information about primary or secondary resource materials in the broad fields of forest, conservation,and environmental history.
All six of the Society’s databases (see descriptions below) are now searchable on the FHS website via InMagic’s WebPublisher software, which allows for greater ease of use, more options for searching and selecting, and clearer search results than the software we were using previously. We hope you find the new online databases to be a major improvement, as we do. Please send comments or suggestions to Elizabeth Hull: [email protected]
