New electronic resource: Latin American Anarchist and Labour Periodicals.

The Library has a new electronic resource:  Latin American Anarchist and Labour Periodicals . This collection contains the full text of periodicals that have been accumulated by the Austrian anarchist, historian and collector Max Nettlau (1865-1944), together with a number of later additions, held at the International Institute of Social History (IISH) in Amsterdam. The collection provides a richness of documentation pertaining explicitly to the formative anarchist and anarcho-syndicalist episode (1890-1920) in the history of Latin American labour movements.

Literary Encyclopedia

The  Literary Encyclopedia  is a new resource for the Library. It is a reliable scholarly online literary reference work for English-language readers. It takes world literature as its field and publishes biographies of major and minor writers; scholarly descriptions of all interesting texts written by these authors, including those often neglected; and a variety of descriptive and critical essays on literary, cultural and historical matters, which provide a finer understanding of the social contexts in which this writing was produced.
