ProQuest Adds to Its British Periodicals Database

ProQuest is working on a new set of digital primary sources from the first half of the 20th century for British Periodicals Collection III, which will be complete in April 2015. It features periodicals that cover themes such as empire and decolonization, first-wave feminism, and consumer society. With more than 850,000 pages, the collection will display works of literature, art, and political opinion as well as other pieces that are of significance to 20th-century research. And the periodicals will be digitized cover-to-cover, so they will include material such as ads and obituaries.

“ProQuest’s goal is to continually enable new research insights by making important primary sources more widely accessible and easier to search,” says Susan Bokern, ProQuest’s VP of information solutions. “With this collection, we’re advancing the work of scholars studying early twentieth century culture—a time of great change that’s richly documented in these pages.”
