History, Classics and Archaeology: Welcome

Useful news and help with information resources within and beyond the Library for anyone studying in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle University.

New resources for 2017/18

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 digitised archives, ebooks, and journals.

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

We've bought eleven new ebook collections from Bloomsbury, comprising over 400 academic titles across a wide range of subjects. We've bought the following collections:

Education 2016 and 2017

Family and Social Law

Film and Media Studies 2016

Labour and Discrimination Law

Legal Philosophy

Medical Law and Ethics

Linguistics 2016 and 2017

Philosophy 2016 and 2017

All the books are individually catalogued on Library Search, or you can browse the titles in each collection. You can browse the legal collections here.


L'Anneé philologique is changing

Please note, the Classical Studies bibliography, L'Année philologique, changed suppliers in January 2018, and will be provided by Brepols from now on. 

We have switched our links to the new site. The old site will still be available until September 2018, but we would encourage you to start using the new site as soon as possible, as the old site will no longer be updated or supported.

The new version contains the same content, and has similar search options to the old version. One major enhancement is that you should now be able to link directly to the full text of online journal articles (where we have access to them): look for 'External links' at the bottom of any record you find.

When searching for modern authors, simply type the author's name in the 'author' box. When searching for ancient authors (e.g. Ovid) or ancient texts, type the name in the 'ancient author and text' box. You can then select the correct form of the author or text name from the drop-down list which appears on screen.

Choose advanced search for the full range of search options, and click the question mark symbol next to any search field to get more search tips.
