British Literary Manuscripts Online - Trial access to 20 December 2013
British Literary Manuscripts Online presents facsimile images of literary manuscripts, including letters and diaries, drafts of poems, plays, novels, and other literary works, and similar materials from the Renaissance through to the end of the nineteenth century. Searching is based on tags and descriptive text associated with each manuscript. Images of the complete manuscript can be viewed, manipulated and navigated on screen. Please note that the text of the manuscripts themselves is not searchable and the database has been created from microfilm collections by digitizing the images and related catalog information and descriptions contained in those collections.
