New primary source collection: Nineteenth Century Collections Online

Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO) is a multi-year digitization and publishing program focusing on archival collections of primary sources providing full-text, fully searchable content. The collection includes monographs, newspapers, pamphlets, manuscripts, ephemera, maps, statistics, and more in both Western and non-Western languages. The resource currently includes four modules:

  1. Asia and the West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange
  2. British Politics and Society
  3. British Theatre, Music, and Literature: High and Popular Culture
  4. European Literature, 1790-1840: The Corvey Collection

Additional modules will be added in 2013 and 2014 and will focus on science, technology, and medicine; photography; the history of women; Europe in Africa; Latin America; Australia and the South Pacific; and more.

The advanced search screen allows you to limit to one archive or search across archives. You also have the option of narrowing your search to one or more specific collections within the archives, or to a specific publication.

Details about the contents of the modules will be included in future posts. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with questions.
