A window onto the 19th century

Nineteenth-century collections now available online
February 5, 2013

Concordians now have online access to a fascinating array of rare and important 19th-century archival material, sourced from leading libraries worldwide and available through the Concordia University Libraries’ web-based collections. Nineteenth Century Collections Online is just one of the significant online resources newly acquired with funds made available through Concordia’s Academic Plan 2012-16.

An ambitious long-term digitization project, Nineteenth Century Collections Online comprises cross-searchable collections of digitized primary sources from the 'long' 19th century (1789-1914), focusing on a variety of subject areas.

Concordia has bought the first four of the archival collections to be released:
•  British Politics and Society
•  European Literature 1790-1840: The Corvey Collection
•  Asia and the West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange
•  British Theatre, Music, and the Arts: High and Popular Culture.

These collections will be of special interest to students of history, political science, literature, art, music and theatre, as well as to anyone interested in the cultural, social and political landscape of the 19th century.

Concordia University Libraries are continually adding new electronic resources to their collections. To stay up-to-date with recent library purchases, check the What’s New section of the Concordia University Libraries web pages.
