Beginning steps

After entering the U.S. Serial Set database, there are options for limiting your research to be sure you are only accessing Serial Set files:

Within the section labeled Document Types, there are several documents files to work with.  Limiting to just the U.S. Serial Set is a multi-step process:

  • Choose Select All to remove all selections.
  • Select Serial Set (1789-present) to search only the Serial Set.
  • Selecting Serial Set Maps (1789-present) will allowing searching only the maps included in the Serial Set documents and reports.  If the maps were produced in color in the original item, they have been reproduced in color in the electronic version as well.
