University of Cambridge users can now access Routledge’s English Historical Documents (EHD) online for a trial period. Launched in November 2013, this online resource contains over 5,500 indexed and fully searchable key primary documents on British History from 12 volumes, spanning over 1400 years. The collection includes the out of print American Colonial Documents to 1776, edited by Merrill Jensen, and Dorothy Whitelock’s Volume 1, 500 – 1042, critical for those studying Anglo-Saxon literature and history.
Content can be explored by subject, date, people and places. Users can create their own personalised login where they may highlight and annotate documents, bookmark entries, save and manage searches. Documents can be opened as PDFs and printed, downloaded, shared, and cited.
Access to this trial is available on campus and from off campus from this link. You will need to login with a Raven username and password when away from Cambridge, then click on to take you into the full-text content.
Trial access will end on Monday the 17th February. If you think this online collection is valuable and useful for your studies please send your comments to the ebooks@cambridge team on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don’t like the platform or find it difficult to use, please contact us to tell us why.
