Fascinating accounts of British history and culture are now available via UBC Library, thanks to new online periodical collections.

19th Century UK Periodicals is a major new collection covering the events, lives, values and themes that shaped the 19th-century world.

To date, two parts of the five-part series have been released. Part 1 marks the advent of commercial lifestyle publishing in Britain and charts the rapid rise of modern magazine culture. Part 2 highlights the role that Britain played beyond its own borders as an imperial power throughout the 19th century.

Meanwhile, British Periodicals provides access to the searchable full text of hundreds of periodicals from the late 17th century to the early 20th century, comprising millions of high-resolution facsimile page images.

UBC Library has access to two collections. British Periodicals Collection I contains more than 160 journals that comprise the UMI microfilm collection Early British Periodicals, the equivalent of 5,238 printed volumes. Topics include literature, philosophy, history, science, the fine arts and the social sciences.

British Periodicals Collection II consists of more than 300 journals from the UMI microfilm collections English Literary Periodicals and British Periodicals in the Creative Arts, along with additional titles. Topics include literature, music, art, drama, archaeology and architecture.
