New online resources at AU: the Burney Collection and British Periodicals Collection I and II

Digitised in 2007 through collaboration between the British Library, Gale/Cengage and the National Science Foundation, the Burney Collection was acquired by the British Library a year after the death of Reverend Charles Burney (1757-1817), a classical scholar and schoolmaster. The online collection contains 1,270 titles and consists primarily of parliamentary papers, London newspapers, periodicals, English regional papers, Irish, Scottish and American newspapers.
