British Periodicals Trial

The Library has acquired trial access to Proquest's British Periodicals Databases. You will require a password to access this resource which can be obtained from our Information Desk.

This resource contains digital reproductions of journals dating from the 17th century up to the 1930's and includes articles authored by Daniel Defoe, Charles Dickens and George Eliot, to name but a few.

The Collection is divided into Periodicals I (covering mainly literature, philosophy, history, science, the fine arts and the social sciences) and Periodicals II (covering literature, music, art, drama, archaeology and architecture).

Our trial access is available until March 12th. You can always see what we have on trial on the trial databases section of our website, and we welcome suggestions for new resources from staff or students.
