Gale Outlines First Archives for Nineteenth Century Collections Online

Gale, part of Cengage Learning, announced the source libraries, collections, and plans for the first four modules of Nineteenth Century Collections Online, its global digitization and publishing program that brings together rare 19th-century primary source content. The company says that most of the content has never before been digitized, and a great deal of the content has never been captured for microfilm or been otherwise made available outside the source institution. Currently still in development, the modules will be available this spring.

Nineteenth Century Collections Online is an ongoing publishing program with content and partner libraries being added continuously. The British Library, The National Archives (U.S.), The National Archives at Kew, U.K., the Bodleian Library–University of Oxford, and Castle Corvey in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany have all provided primary source content to be digitized and included in the archive. About 150 collections from these institutions—as well as from many other libraries and archives—will be included in modules this year.

The first modules include the following:

  • British Politics and Society
  • Asia and the West: Diplomacy and Cultural Exchange
  • British Theatre, Music, and Literature: High and Popular Culture
  • Corvey Collection of European Literature: 1790-1840

For more information on Nineteenth Century Collections Online, visit or download Nineteenth Century Collections Online Museum, the free iOS application available in the iTunes app store (search: nineteenth century). It provides free content and the opportunity to interact with materials (including manuscripts, sheet music, photos, and more) in the context that is most relevant to the user. The application also enables researchers to receive information regarding events, enhancements, and research tips, as well as the opportunity to provide feedback and drive development of the program.
