National Library of Wales: Fresh new look for the National Library of Wales’ largest research resource
The National Library of Wales is pleased to announce that it has launched the fresh new Welsh Journals website, its largest research resource to date and which allows free digital access to over 1.2 million pages from over 450 Welsh journals. Welsh Journals is a valuable addition to the Library’s established and growing portfolio of digital resources.
Providing free remote access to a variety of Welsh and English language journals published between 1735 and 2007, the website allows users to search the content of the journals as well as browse through titles and editions. The website also enables users to browse by year and decades and also provides a link to the catalogue entry for each journal.
Titles range from academic and scientific publications to literary and popular magazines and relate to a variety of subjects. From archaeology to science, to political satire and theological matters, they contain a wealth of information relating to Wales and which record Wales’ intellectual history.
Dr Dafydd Tudur, Digital Access Section Manager said:
“Welsh Journals contains the nation’s intellectual history. It is a unique window into the way we have understood and interpreted ourselves and the world around us over a period of nearly three centuries.”
Whether you want to find the recipes that your grandmother used or gather information for your academic work, Welsh Journals Online is an invaluable tool for anyone with an interest in Welsh history, as some of our users have discovered:
According to one user the website “Looks great! It will be a very special resource for researchers and others” while another stated that this will be “an excellent website for schools”.
