Bodleian Library – History Resources

The Bodleian History Faculty Library (HFL) is located in the Radcliffe Camera and Gladstone Link in central Oxford.

You can find an overview of the collections here, information on the HFL here and the Bodleian HFL blog here.

One of the latest resources to be added is the Women, War and Society, 1914–1918 (Archives Unbound):
Following a successful trial last year and thanks to the very generous donation by John and Jean Dunbabin, Oxford historians now have access to Women, War and Society, 1914–1918 (Archives Unbound).

This resource fully documents the essential contribution of women during the Great War as well as the revolutionary and permanent impact the War had on the personal, social and professional lives of these women. It is an important collection for research into 20th century social, political, military and gender history.

The resource reproduces primary source material (115,225 images) brought together in the Imperial War Museum, London, and originally published by the Air Ministry, League of Mercy and War Fund, Purple Cross Service, Russian Relief Fund and many other organizations. This definitive digital collection of charity and international relief reports, pamphlets, photographs, press cuttings and more is fully searchable.
