Cambridge University Library


A new set of electronic resources is available for 2021 thanks to funding from the University of Cambridge to support continued teaching and learning throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

We have added the resources to our vast online library, so that you can keep studying, teaching and researching, wherever you are this term. The links below will take you to the Electronic Collections Management blog, where you can learn more about these resources and how to access them. 

Leading scholarly content to support all subject areas

Major additions to digital archives 

  • Archives Unbound - significant digital archives in a wide range of subjects
  • 8 key collections in the British Online Archives series
  • Historical Newspaper Archives, including:
    • parts 3, 4 and 5 of the British Library Newspapers (completing our collection)
    • The Telegraph and The Daily Mail digital archives 
    • access for 2021 to important historical newspaper archives
    • access to Digital Scholar Lab for text mining across all or a selection of the archives.

Resources to support specific disciplines

Links to these resources are available via the blog posts, through Cambridge University Libraries A-Z of e-resources, the from newspaper pages and Newspaper LibGuide. Where appropriate, you will find records at title and/or article level via iDiscover.

We hope that our many readers will understand that we must prioritise support for current staff and students at this time. If you aren’t a current student or member of staff at the University of Cambridge, you can continue to access the Cambridge Digital Library, the University Repository Apollo, the Ask a Curator service for Special Collections enquiries, and many of our LibGuides. We will keep this under review and will resume fuller access as soon as possible.
