You are interested in early modern British and European History? Take a look at Gale's State Papers Online. It is designed to be a rich digital resource for understanding 200 years of history from the time of Cardinal Wolsey to the Age of Enlightenment. Gales seeks to provide via State Papers Online almost 3 million pages of correspondence, reports, memoranda, and parliamentary drafts from civil servants and provincial administrators, and intelligence reports from foreign ambassadors. The collection offers a vivid portrait of the British monarchy, internal strife, and religious conflict, as well as details of daily life and events across every level of society. From the State Papers Online website: State Papers Online will be published complete over the period 2008 - 2011 in four cross-searchable parts and will be available in libraries on subscription or by purchase. Part I is due for release in November 2008, followed by Part II in March 2009. An edition for more general use will be introduced when the full project is finished in 2011. Part I: The Tudors: Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, 1509-1603: State Papers Domestic Containing 380,000 facsimile manuscript documents linked to fully-searchable Calendar entries, Part I delivers the complete collection of State Papers Domestic for this era. Every facet of early modern Government is detailed including social and economic affairs. Part II: The Tudors: Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, 1509 1603: State Papers Foreign Containing around 560,000 facsimile manuscript documents linking to fully-searchable Calendar entries, Part II reunites Foreign, Scotland, Borders and Ireland papers for the 16th century together with the Registers ('Minutes') of the Privy Council. Gale, as part of Cengage Learning, is one of the world's leaders in e-research and educational publishing for libraries, schools and businesses. It provides more than 600 databases that are published online, in print, as eBooks and in microform.
