New digital resources for medieval studies scholars


We have recently acquired access to the Bloomsbury Medieval Studies catalogue.

Scholars from both the University of London and our federal member institutions will now be able to view the marvellous Bloomsbury Medieval Studies digital catalogue - which provides a global perspective of the medieval period - through the library.  The digitised primary sources available on this platform include manuscripts, maps, incunabula and objects, as well as texts.  You will also be able to view digitised items from our Special Collections - including The Canterbury Tales, The Black Prince, and Malleus Maleficarum – from anywhere in the world.

Secondary source material is also available in a growing selection of more than 200 titles from the Bloomsbury e-book collection. These can be explored by place, period or topic, browsed by resource type, or searched for by keyword with advanced search tools.  The related content links allow researchers to quickly navigate through ideas and topics without the need to keep returning to the search result list. 

The Encyclopaedia of the Global Middle Ages is also integrated, adding commentary to key concepts in their local and global context through a collection of shorter thematic articles and case studies - such as Ravens in Medieval Northwest Europe and Queenship in the Sultanate of Delhi (1206–1526).

For access to all of this and more, just register online with your University of London email address.
