The Libraries now have access to Nineteenth Century Collections Online, a multi-year global digitization and publishing program focusing on primary source collections of the long nineteenth century. This collection includes a variety of formats, including monographs, newspapers, periodicals, diaries, personal letters, manuscripts, maps, pamphlets and more.
The archives of NCCO will be released incrementally. Four are now available:
European literature 1790-1840 : the Corvey collection
British politics and society
Asia and the West : diplomacy and cultural exchange
British theatre, music, and literature : high and popular culture
European Literature 1790-1840 : the Corvey Collection includes the full-text of more than 9,500 English, French and German titles. This collection comprises one of the most important collections of Romantic era writing in existence anywhere – including fiction, short prose, dramatic works, poetry and more – with a focus on especially difficult-to-find works by lesser-known, historically neglected writers.
Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures reveals alternative modes of contact for medieval scholars, librarians and archivists specializing in Middle Ages study and Medieval texts, made possible by the emergence of digital resources and by engagement with the Digital Humanities. The Journal pushes traditional national and temporal boundaries as the first such publication linking peer-reviewed research and scholarship with the digital libraries of medieval manuscripts such as The Digital Library of Medieval Manuscripts and Parker on the Web. Published twice a year, Digital Philology includes scholarly essays, manuscript studies, and reviews of relevant resources such as websites, digital projects, and books
