We like to give you the opportunity to try out new services and give us your feedback before we subscribe to them. Please send your feedback to the Resource Management team. Our current trials are listed below:
Launched in October 2012 by Bloomsbury Publishing in collaboration with the Churchill Archives Centre, the Churchill Archive is a digital library of modern international history available online for the first time.
It includes more than 800,000 pages of original documents, produced between 1874 and 1965, ranging from Winston S. Churchill’s personal correspondence to his official exchanges with kings, presidents, politicians, and military leaders. This is more than a fantastic collection of primary source material; it is a unique online resource offering new insight into a fascinating period of our past.
‘This is the holy grail of twentieth-century archives.’ - Martin Farr, Director of Undergraduate Studies, School of Historical Sudies, Newcastle University, UK
Access is on campus only at http://www.churchillarchive.com/index
The trial ends on 2nd February. Please pass any feedback to the Resource Management team.
