Trial until 4 Dec: English Historical Documents Online

Oxford users are now invited to trial English Historical Documents Online (EHDO).

English Historical Documents Online homepageEHDO provides online access to the very well-known English Historical Documents series, essential to historians engaged in the study of British history from the early medieval ages to the 20th century and US history from 1776.

The selection of documents includes a wide range of sources, such as government and cabinet proceedings, military dispatches, newspaper articles, pamphlets, personal and official letters and diaries, covering political and constitutional history, religious, cultural and economic history.

As well as searching by keyword in the full-text, you can browse by volume (ie by period), but you can also find documents by themes, such as economic history, military history, social history, etc.

There is a handy list of abbreviations of sources selected and the editors’ prefaces.
