Oxford English Dictionary (OED) 

The OED is the major source on the evolution of the English language. As the authoritative guide to the meaning, history, and pronunciation of over half a million words, the Dictionary traces the usage of English words through 2.5 million quotations from international English language sources, including classic literature and specialist periodicals, film scripts and even cookbooks. The OED covers words from across the English-speaking world, from North America to South Africa, from Australia and New Zealand to the Caribbean. It also provides etymological analysis, listings of variant spellings, and pronunciation using the International Phonetic Alphabet. 

Poole's Plus

This enhanced Web version of William Frederick Poole's Index to Periodical Literature (1802-1906), precursor to the Reader's Guide, is currently the major digital index of the nineteenth century. With over three million citations, the Index cites articles documenting the cultural and intellectual life of this period for researchers from all disciplines. The contents are divided into series, each covering a genre of literature. Poole's Plus enhancements include corrections and additions to the print version; for many of the previously anonymous entries, the author's name is now given. In addition, the Poole's Plus is in the process of adding citations from the Index to Periodicals (1890-1902), edited by William T. Stead;  some of these citations are already available in the database. The Index to Periodicals covers the following sources: 

Cumulative Index to a Selected List of Periodicals (1896-1899)
Nineteenth Century Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature 
Index Medicus (1879-1927)
Galloupe's General Index to Engineering Periodicals
