Digital Library

The Digital Library represents a key development in the Special Collection Division’s efforts to enable greater access to our holdings. For the first time users can access material from our collections online.

There are currently two archive collections accessible through the Digital Library.


The first of these are some of the records of the Anglo-Jewish Association, up to 1945. Since the 1870s, the AJA has offered support for Jewish philanthropic interests in the English speaking world. It has had a close involvement with Jewish communities overseas, from Fez and Bucharest to Bombay.


The second are letters from the Palmerston Papers and includes correspondence between Henry Temple, third Viscount Palmerston, and Sir S.Canning, Sir G.C.Lewis, William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, and Lord Ponsonby.


It is possible to either browse through these collections or, as catalogue records have been written to go with every image, conduct detailed searches.


The Digital Library also contains the online exhibition 'Here, look after him': los niños, refugee children from the Spanish Civil War which relates to our collections on Basque child refugees.
