ProQuest Partners with Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth

Aug 12, 2008

ProQuest has released the online version of Documents on British Policy Overseas, providing scholars in history and world affairs access to the activities and thoughts of Britain's diplomats and policymakers, from the build-up to World War I to the Cold War. Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has partnered with ProQuest to make these materials available digitally through libraries. Until now, this collection of primary source materials was only available through three different print series. This searchable database is the online version of three print series: British Documents on the Origins of War (1898-1914), Documents on British Foreign Policy (1918-1939), and Documents on British Policy Overseas.

Additionally, newspapers from Ireland, South Africa, New Zealand, and the Middle East are among the 35 additional titles now available to libraries subscribing to ProQuest International Newsstand. New titles include prominent newspapers such as The New Zealand Herald, The Mercury, and The Daily Star. ProQuest International Newsstand is one of a variety of resources aimed at offering a news solution for libraries.
