eResources Trial: Pravda

The Library is currently hosting a trial of the online resource: Pravda

This eResource is also available Off-Campus until 9th August 2019.

Pravda (“Truth”) was the official voice of Soviet communism and the Central Committee of the Communist Party between 1918 and 1991. Founded in 1912 in St. Petersburg, Pravda originated as an underground daily workers’ newspaper, and it soon became the main newspaper of the revolutionary wing of the Russian socialist movement. Throughout the Soviet era, party members were obligated to read Pravda. Today, Pravda still remains the official organ of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, an important political faction in contemporary Russian politics.

The publication of Pravda was completely suspended in 1915 and 1916, therefore no archival material can be found for those years.

You can find this resource on the Library’s Trial Databases page or on the A-Z of the Databases and E-Books section of the Library website.

During this trial period, any feedback is very welcome and can be sent to Monica Sanchidrian: sanchidm@tcd.ie.

eResources Trial: Archives of Sexuality and Gender part 3

The Library is  currently hosting a trial of the Archives of Sexuality and Gender digital archive, which you can try for yourself.

This eResource is also available Off-Campus until 3rd August 2019.

This fully searchable digital archive spans the sixteenth to the twentieth century and is the largest digital collection of primary source material relating to the history and study of sex, sexuality and gender. Documentation covering social, political, health and legal issues impacting LGBTQ communities around the world is included, as well as rare and unique books on sex and sexuality from the sciences to the humanities, providing a window into how sexuality and gender roles were viewed and changed over time. Selection of materials for this milestone digital programme is guided by an advisory board consisting of leading scholars and librarians in Sexuality and Gender Studies. Documents include periodicals, newsletters, manuscripts, government records, organizational papers, correspondence, posters, and other materials.

Gale partners with a variety of organisations to digitally scan primary source materials from original documents, in some cases from archives that are difficult to access. The application of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology makes the archives fully text-searchable, and the Gale Primary Sources platform allows these searches to be carried out across multiple archives simultaneously. Gale’s search technology allows you to expand on your search results, with Term Clusters showing direct links to other documents closely associated with your search, and Term Frequency showing the appearance of search terms over time.

You can find this resource on the Library’s Trial Databases page or on the A-Z of the Databases and E-Books section of the Library website.
