New Research Resource: Churchill Archive

The YIS library has added a new research resource, one which I&S and History students will find particularly useful: the Churchill Archive. As described on the Churchill Archive’s about page,

Published in October 2012 by Bloomsbury Publishing in collaboration with the Churchill Archives Centre, the Churchill Archive is a digital library of modern international history. It includes more than 800,000 pages of original documents, produced between 1874 and 1965, ranging from Winston S. Churchill’s personal correspondence to his official exchanges with kings, presidents, politicians, and military leaders. This is more than a fantastic collection of primary source material; it is a unique online resource offering new insight into a fascinating period of our past.

While on the school network, students can freely access the Churchill Archive without logging in. If you want to use this resource at home, visit the library research portal for the username and password.

Interested? Take ten minutes to watch the tour so you can get the most out of this excellent digital library.

Notice you can register for a MyArchive account, a personalised account within the Archive which will allow you to save your searches and favourite documents. To create an account, you should be logged in to the Churchill Archive, then visit the Sign-in page where you will see a link at the bottom of the page to register for a My Archive account.

Happy Researching!
