There have been a few new additions to our online eresources lately. These can be explored from outside the Library if you are a Victorian-resident Library member – log in with your Library member number, or sign up for membership online to begin.

There’s a wide range of subjects and content types to discover, including: the Gale Decolonization database, with a focus on independence movements in former Commonwealth nations; food history in the form of cookbooks from as early as the 18th century; Irish newspapers from the 18th century through to the early 1920’s; a vast trove of journals, books, reports, and personal documents that trace the development of science from the age to Newton to Einstein; and some new titles featured on Collection Discovery.
