New stuff! Very Short Introductions and new Adam Matthew Digital collections

Posted by: on October 5, 2015   |Comments (0)|Tips and Tools

We’re excited about a couple of new resources we acquired over the summer.  (OK, yeah, we’re geeks. But, if you’re reading this blog, you’re a geek too.)

First up is the Oxford Very Short Introductions site. “What are Very Short Introductions”, you ask? ” Well they’re just what they sound like!”, we answer.

The perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly …Launched by Oxford University Press in 1995, Very Short Introductions offer concise introductions to a diverse range of subject areas from Climate to Consciousness, Game Theory to Ancient Warfare, Privacy to Islamic History, Economics to Literary Theory.

We also have 2 new history resources from Adam Matthew Digital. We did mention the geek thing already, right? Of course we think it’s fun just to browse  these collections for images, original documents, maps, photos – tons of  stuff. Even if we’re not working on a paper!

The AMD American History Collection consists documents American History from the earliest settlers to the mid-19th century. (we don’t yet have access up to 1945). It is sourced from the Gilder Lehrman Collection, one of the finest archives available for the study of American History.

Explore original manuscript and typescript papers created and collected by the Mass Observation organization, as well as printed publications, photographs and interactive features.
