Cengage's plans to digitise the 19th century could open up a whole new world>>

"I've thoroughly enjoyed exploring the material in the first two archives - British Politics and Society and European Literature, 1790-1840: The Corvey Collection. It really is most impressive - very easy to navigate, extraordinarily good definition of hand-written archival material, and including some pretty obscure - and hence invaluable - finds amongst what has been loaded on the two archives. Nineteenth Century Collections Online is clearly destined to become a gold star resource for economic and social historians."
Dr. Brian Robson - Director, Centre for Urban Policy Studies (CUPS), The University of Manchester

"The British Library is delighted to be partnering with Gale Cengage Learning to provide access to some of our rare and unique holdings from the 19th Century via the innovative Nineteenth Century Collections Online platform. NCCO's options for search and navigation through rich content from many libraries and archives opens up some of our vast collections in ways never possible before."
