Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO), parts 5-8

Nineteenth Century Collections Online

Last year, the California Digital Library negotiated the purchase of Nineteenth Century Collections Online (NCCO), parts 1-4 for all ten UC campuses. Among other specialized archives such as one for photography, African colonialism and encounters between the East and the West, the first parts of NCCO include more than 6500 digitized books in French from the The Corvey Collection of European Literature, 1790-1840. UC Berkeley has trial access to parts 5-8 of NCCO through October 17 and we are currently seeking feedback. Please email cpotts AT with your impressions of the second installment of this “ground-breaking resource” focused on digitized primary source collections of the long nineteenth century.
