New e-Resource - Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO) I-IV

The Library is very pleased to announce the permanent-access purchase of Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO) I-IV, following a very successful trial, and positive feedback from Schools.

NCCO is a scholarly digitisation project providing a wide range of searchable full-text primary sources for the 'long' 19th century (1789-1914); it is a sequel to Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO).

It unites a wide range of previously unavailable primary sources, invaluable for a wide range of academic disciplines, and includes works in Western and non-Western languages, sourced from rare collections at libraries and other worldwide institutions. Read more here

Contents include: books and monographs, newspapers and periodicals, manuscripts, photographs, pamphlets, diaries and personal letters; maps and ephemera.

The first 4 archives are:

British Politics and Society
European Literature, 1790-1840: The Corvey Collection
Asia and the West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange
