This project is intended to assist researchers who are planning to use European libraries and archives.

Likewise, "historical" resources are broadly defined to include not only those relevant to the traditional study of history, but also artistic, scientific, and other subjects with a historical dimension.

The items were digitized from a variety of formats including books, manuscripts, sound recordings, photographs, maps, and other resources.Are you interested in the Crusades? We present a 6-volume work edited by Kenneth M. Setton -- truly a collaborative and comprehensive treatment of the topic. Do you like almanacs and anecdotes? Check out Chambers's Book of Days.

The Literature Collection is a multilayered grouping of works in literature and the humanities. From medieval to modern, scholarly to satirical, there is something for everyone. Diversity rules: there are texts translated from Nordic languages, texts left untranslated from Spanish, poetry old and new, and a rich vein of information about the writer James Joyce. And that's just the beginning! We invite the serious researcher, or the merely curious, to explore what we have gathered, and to return again and again.
