New via the University Library – two History online archives!
New! Gender: Identity and Social Change
Members of the University can access a great new resource which the library has bought.
You will find primary sources, including images, about gender roles from the 19th century to the present. The collection offers sources for the study of women’s suffrage, the feminist movement, the men’s movement, employment, education, the body, the family etc. in the UK, USA and Australia.
New! Greatly expanded access to State Papers Online
Following on from our popular access to Tudor and Stuart State Papers, the library has now bought access to 18th Century State Papers Online Part 1 including Registers of the Privy Council as well as documents on domestic, military and naval matters. Whether you are interested in the Jacobite rebellion, the Seven Years’ War with France, the Boston Tea Party or official correspondence to and from the First Lords of the Admiralty, take a look at the wide selection of beautifully hand-scripted manuscripts.
