Wellesley is an index to the authorship of articles, and a bibliography of articles written by each contributor, and using each pseudonym. Citations of evidence are provided to support attributions of authorship, along with brief biographical and vocational details. 45 important monthly and quarterly titles are included, covering the period from the beginning of the Westminster Review in 1824 to the end of the century. The exception to this is the Edinburgh Review, which is indexed from first issue, in 1802. Wellesley does not index poetry.
The court rolls of Ramsey, Hepmangrove and Bury constitute a distinctive collection of primary sources for examining and exploring the lives of ordinary people and the institutions of a rural community in the East Midlands of medieval England from the end of the 13th century to the beginning of the 17th century.
They were previously published on microfiche as part of The Court Rolls of Ramsey, Hepmangrove and Bury, 1268-1600, edited and translated by Edwin DeWindt and originally published by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies (Toronto) in 1990 as vol. 17 of the Subsidia Mediaevalia series (ISBN 0-88844-366-8). In addition to the fiche, this book contains an extensive introduction and comprehensive index of the rolls, including people, places, and subjects.
These court rolls, together with census data, supplement Ramsey: The Lives of an English Fenland Town, 1200-1600 by Anne Reiber DeWindt and Edwin Brezette DeWindt, published by the Catholic University of America Press in January 2006 (ISBN 0-8132-1424-6).
Brief citations to articles that appeared in The Times (London) (1906-1980). Searchable by keyword in the title and/or in article main heading. Searches are combined with Palmer's Index of the Times (London) (1790-1905).
The present digital collection, that helps chart the development of the concept of 'news' and 'newspapers' and the "free press", totals almost 1 million pages and contains approximately 1,270 titles. Many of the Burney newspapers are well known, but many pamphlets and broadsides also included have remained largely hidden. Newly digitized, all Burney treasures are now fully text-searchable
