What's Out There: Links to digitized dime novels and story papers

This list developed from my own mixed delight and frustration in looking for online copies of dime novels and story papers. I am deeply grateful to institutions that devote resources to making digitized copies of such literature available -- but often frustrated by the amount of time it takes to find out if a particular item is online and to work through different cataloguing systems to find that resource. Thus, the list below is a no-frills text list of series titles and dates or issue numbers, with links either to individual items or to a page at the institution's website that offers direct links to each item.

The list is alphabetical by series or journal title. For the most part, it includes only material published in the United States.

The extensive biblographic listings prepared by Edward T. LeBlanc and online at Villanova University provide author-title information for individual volumes in each series. For most series published by Beadle and Adams, bibliographic information can be found in Albert Johannsen's House of Beadle and Adams, available in an online edition created and hosted by Northern Illinois University Libraries.
