Library trial: Historical Texts

The Library has arranged a 30 day trial to the JISC Historical Texts database. It will run from 7th December 2018 until 7th January 2019 inclusive and can be accessed by clicking here.

Historical Texts is a full text digital archive enabling you to cross search, view and download over 460,000 texts published in the late C15th to the long C19th from four key collections:

  • Early English Books Online (EEBO) (1473-1700)
  • Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO) (1701-1800)
  • 65,000 British Library 19th Century texts (BL) (1789-1914)
  • UK Medical Heritage Library (UKMHL) (1800s-1900s)

The resource encompasses a wealth of content ranging from the Romantic to the Victorian period and covers a wide range of subject areas including English literature, history, geography, science, social science, religion and medicine.

Materials include books but also pamphlets, sermons, prayer books, sheet music, broadsides, newsbooks and much more.
