In 2003, Gale Cengage Learning changed the landscape of primary source digitization for research with the release of Eighteenth Century Collections Online. Taking on digitizing the 19th Century presented new issues and concerns, with publishing in Great Britain alone exceeding more than 10-fold that of the previous century. Without the guidance of a widely accepted bibliography, how should resource cultivation begin? Beyond the documents, researchers have changed. As long ago adopters to electronic resources, today’s researchers require more tools and functionality than ever before.

With the guidance of an elite, globally focused advisory board, Gale Cengage Learning is proud to announce the release of Nineteenth Century Collections Online. Please join us for an overview of the scope and focus of the program, and a tour of this exciting line of archives.


Ray Abruzzi – Associate Publisher for Gale Digital Collections and the Program Manager for Nineteenth Century Collections Online.

Tatiana Holway – Independent Scholar, Author, Editor, Research Consultant, specializing in interdisciplinary approaches to Victorian literature and culture and Nineteenth Century Collections Board Member.
