Prof Roger Scruton to give lecture on 29 September

The Senate House Library starts its autumn exhibition Illumination-How the Visual Captures the Imagination with a new series of events: symposia, lectures, workshop and concerts. Using ideas and objects from the exhibition as a tangent, academics from various disciplines apply a critical lens to showcase the Library’s collections.

Changes to electronic resources for Shakespearean study

In anticipation of the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016, the Library has been reviewing its offering of digital Shakespearean resources. As a result of this review, we will continue to offer access to the  World Shakespeare Bibliography Online  which indexes a huge range of secondary materials, reviews and other references to Shakespeare. However, we will also be making some changes, perhaps the most notable will be the replacement of the Shakespeare Collection Online with a new resource for the Library, Drama Online.

The Wellesley Index online

The Library has a new electronic resource,  The Wellesley Index to Victorian Periodicals . This is on the ProQuest platform and includes links to article full text for selected titles in Periodicals Archive Online and British Periodicals. (The Library’s previous edition was an index only on the CDROM network.) The particular value of the resource is that it identifies the authors of the articles which were often not indicated in the original publications.
