Great new online resources for 2016/17

Great news! We've invested in a brilliant range of online resources for the new academic year. Following resource trials and consultation with students and staff, we've added millions of pages of historic newspapers, archives, ebooks and literary texts, together with multimedia and other learning resources. 

Whatever your subject area, you're sure to find something useful. Just explore this box for full details!

Mergent Archives

Mergent intellect

Great news! We have added two new collections to our British Library newspaper portfolio. These add over 70 new regional titles, including local papers such as the Newcastle Journal, Sunderland Daily Echo, Shields Gazette, and Morpeth Herald, together with key titles from Birmingham, Sheffield, Leeds and elsewhere. The new coverage is mainly from the nineteenth century.
