  • Eighteenth Century Drama: censorship, society and the stage – an archive of almost every play submitted for licence between 1737 and 1824, and hundreds of documents that provide social context for the plays, featuring: John Larpent collection from the Huntington Library
  • Pravda Digital Archive (1912-2018) – a digital archive of Pravda the official newspaper of Soviet communism
  • Oxford Bibliographies (Classics) – combining features of an annotated bibliography and a high-level encyclopedia, these research guides direct researchers to the best available scholarship in Classics

  • Edmond Huguet, Dictionnaire de la langue française du 16e siècle – the essential reference for the language of the Renaissance.  The dictionary’s nomenclature (more than 100 000 entries) offers almost all the words of the Renaissance language
  • Portail Calvin et Genève 16 – this portal presents all the texts by or about John Calvin which have been published by the Librairie Droz from 1960 to the present, with an initial focus on Geneva, Calvin, and the beginnings of the French evangelical movement with Lefèvre d’Etaples and Marguerite de Navarre
  • Drama Online (Nick Hern Books) – provides access to the plays, screenplays and theatre books one of the UK’s leading specialist performing arts publishers

1) A budget surplus became available in 2018/2019 due to a change in the VAT rate applicable to e-books and e-journals (reduced from 23% (standard rate) to 9% (2nd reduced rate), effective 1st January 2019).

2) A prioritised wish list was established of online archival resources with one-off costs, reflecting School priorities. The prioritised wish list was used to inform purchase decisions.

3) Subject Librarians provided input in the development of the wish list based on their knowledge of Schools’ requirements – direct engagement with Schools and Faculties was not possible due the limited time available to make purchase decisions

4) Many of the items on this list are focused on disciples in Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, reflecting the fact that these collections of historical/archival materials tend to be sold on a ‘once off’ basis.

In order to ensure transparency around the decision-making process for acquiring new electronic resources, the Library is committed in 2019/2020 to establishing in consultation with Schools:

  • A mechanism for assigning any available surplus budget in 2019/2020 and beyond towards the purchase of online archival resources with one-off costs
  • A mechanism for establishing annual subscriptions to electronic resource
