Catalogue record, available via: U.K. Parliamentary Papers.
Once on the landing page for this resource, select “Advanced Search” and Public Petitions to Parliament, 1833-1918 will appear to be selected for searching.


  • Every petition accepted by Parliament between 1833-1918
  • Analyze issues of importance to both UK populace and Parliament
  • Full integration to UK Parliamentary Papers for a full view of the issue

Petitioning was by far the most popular form of political participation, but it has long been overlooked by historians and social scientists preoccupied with elections and election rituals, campaigns to extend the right to vote, and the rise of national political parties. The utility to scholars of public petitions is not just limited to political historians studying the groundswell of public pressure for the expansion of the voting franchise.

This resource contains petitions on:
ecclesiastical issues, crime and criminals, colonies, taxation, education, and on every other issue of interest to the populace of Britain.
This project appeals to: social, cultural, and religious scholars of Britain. From religious scholars interested on Methodism and the Church of England, scientists concerned with pollution and pollution controls during the Industrial Revolution, and sociologists concerned with how these issues were influenced by and influenced the People.

Users will be able to analyze the social, geographical, religious, and gender compositions of these issues of importance to Britons and allow for detailed textual and rhetorical analysis of the petitions. It will allow researchers to exploit new sources on the formative role of petitions to Parliament during the nineteenth century (1833-1918), an unparalleled period of political modernization and democratization in Britain.

The Nautical Magazine Library Collection.


Catalogue record, available from: The Nautical Magazine Library Collection.






The Nautical Magazine first appeared in 1832, published monthly at the price of one shilling. It aimed to advance ‘the safety of seamen’, with a focus on the merchant marine, and a readership of professional seafarers. The founding editor, A. B. Becher (1796–1876), served for many years under the distinguished hydrographer Sir Francis Beaufort, and the magazine reflected Beaufort’s interests by reporting on new charts, research on weather and the oceans, astronomy and navigation, and statistics on wrecks and the Lifeboat Institution.
The content regularly included serialised accounts of voyages, descriptions of distant countries, notes on new shipping regulations, and discussion of the latest technologies. There were also reports on current affairs such as (during the Victorian period) the searches for Sir John Franklin’s lost Arctic expedition, the Crimean War and the Suez Canal project.
Astute editorial decisions ensured that the content mirrored the evolving concerns of readers, enabling ‘the Nautical’ to remain popular for nearly two centuries. It is a fascinating source of data, news and opinions for maritime, economic and social historians, genealogists, and shipping enthusiasts.

Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Asian History


Catalogue record, available from: Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Asian History.






The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Asian History has over 140 articles and summaries available, providing in-depth overviews of the major areas of research and will continue to grow with the field over time.

The Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Asian History is a dynamic, innovative, comprehensive, self-reflexive online research encyclopedia, which provides access to state-of-the-art research and also connects readers to the full range of internet resources for research and teaching, including audio, visual, video materials, digitized archives, and other primary sources.

Some extracts from the Editor in Chief David Ludden on the ORE of Asian History:
“In standard school-book geography, Asia is a continent connected to Europe that includes Russia east of the Urals, the Caucasus, and Middle East. But in international affairs and world area studies, including History, it is a changing collection of states and cultural regions east of Iran, excluding the Caucasus and Middle East, and in some recent versions also all of Russia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and even Afghanistan and Pakistan. In popular discourse, Asia always excludes Russia, the Caucasus, and Middle East. In Europe and the UK, Asia commonly centers on India, but in the United States, it centers on China. In the US, being Asian usually means having traits typical in East Asia, but in Europe and the UK, most Asians are from South Asia.

This confusing mixture of territorial definitions is an intellectual legacy of Asian Studies from the days of imperialism, nationalism, orientalism, and Cold War; now it is certainly archaic, as are disciplinary separations of History from social sciences and the isolation of histories of science, art, technology, architecture, archaeology, music, health, medicine, environment, and other subjects. The internet allows disparate fields and approaches to be interconnected as never before; it can foster new conversations and collaborations. The ORE can connect specialists in new ways, forming new intellectual spaces, for example, among area specialists separated by oceans and continents. The ORE provides a way to overcome the current disconnect of Asian History from processes of globalization and worldwide Asian migrations…”

“As it evolves, the ORE of Asian History will cover the entire sweep of Asian history in its broadest definition, from prehistory to the present and into the future.”
