TRIAL: British Records on the Atlantic World, 1700-1900

We now have trial access to British Records on the Atlantic World, 1700-1900 from Microform Academic Publishers.  The trial runs through December 7 and is available on campus, via IP access: http://braw.britishonlinearchives.co.uk/

This series brings together a wealth of collections spanning two centuries of Britain's colonisation, commercial, missionary and even literary relations with Africa and the Americas. Alongside the records of Liverpool merchants involved in the infamous Triangular Trade, there are those of slave plantation owners, of early Anglican missionaries, of naval and customs officials, and of a group of socialists from Lancashire, who maintained a lengthy correspondence over many years with the father of American poetry.

The series is an online off-shoot of our long-standing microfilm series, British Records Relating to America in Microform (BRRAM), and has been developed under both the General Editorship of Professor Kenneth Morgan of Brunel University and with support from the British Association for American Studies (BAAS).
