The following indices, databases, or references were used to compile the information in VicMag:
- Altholz, Joseph (The Religious Press in Britain, 1760-1900)
- Gives denominational information for religious periodicals, a short background on
the religious press during the time period mentioned, plus dates, frequency, and alternate titles.
A good place to start when looking for journals with religious purposes or viewpoints.
- Poole's Index
- Many of the smaller journals may not be indexed here, but it's worth a try. RILN sometimes notes
if a periodical is indexed in Poole's.
- RILN (Union Catalog)
- This subscription web-based index contains library holdings for thousands of publications.
One can often find interesting supplementary information about a publication (like subtitles,
alternate titles, etc.). It's accessible through Temple's library website (on Temple computers).
- Waterloo Directory
- This directory (now in hard copy as well as CD-ROM) may be large and somewhat suspect, but it's a good central
compilation of many Victorian periodicals.
- Vols. 1-7: A list of journals (alphbetical by title). Gives publication information,
and occasional extended commentary and location information. You might even get lucky and
find a reproduction of a journal's title page.
- End of Vol. 7: Index of Issuing Bodies, with all associated publications.
- Vol. 8: Index of Places & People, an alphabetical listing of places of publication &
publishers (with assoc. publications).
- Vols. 9-10: Subject Index. This list of publication subject matter is constantly being
expanded. The subjects most comprehensively covered are: Art & Architechture, Children,
Feminism, Music, Theatre, Wit & Humor, and Women.
