Introduction

Welcome to British Online Archives from Microform Academic Publishers

Microform Academic Publishers offers scholars and academics the primary sources to advance their research within the humanities and social sciences. This online archive enables users to access our unique resources from any location with internet access. The archive has a wide range of items to interest those researching territories colonised by Britain including: America, India, Africa, the West Indies, New Zealand, Australia and Melanesia. Documents include records made by the East India Company and the records of missionaries from the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. The collection contains a range of sources that relate to both politics and history, these range from the Parliamentary Labour Party papers and the Anti-fascist newsletters of the International Transport Workers' Federation to the records of the Communist Party of Great Britain, and on to The British Union of Fascists’ newspapers and secret files. Our documents include British Broadcasting Corporation records and trade directories alongside further content to be found by selecting the ‘List Collections’ option on the above menu. Samples of most collections are freely available and you can feel confidence in using these services which are provided by a company with over fifty years of archival preservation and publishing experience.

The digitised collections which comprise this website are drawn both from recently scanned or microfilmed manuscripts and archives and from our extensive catalogue of microform publications.
