State Papers Online 1509-1714
"State Papers Online, 1509-1714, is a groundbreaking new online resource for the study of Early Modern Britain and Europe. By reuniting State Papers Domestic and Foreign with the Registers of the Privy Council and State Papers in the British Library, the collection creates a new backbone for research and teaching in politics, government, social economic and religious history. The project benefits from a close partnership with The National Archives, London and draws upon the expertise of an Advisory Board of academics. State Papers Online, 1509-1714 reproduces the original historical manuscripts in facsimile linking each manuscript to its corresponding fully-searchable Calendar entry. By overcoming the challenge of matching an individual Calendar entry to the original Paper, State Papers Online 1509-1714 marks an enormous advance in historical research. State Papers Online, 1509-1714 will be published in four cross-searchable parts. Part I is due for release in November 2008, followed by Part II in March 2009"
