Nineteenth century serials edition (NCSE)

Nineteenth century serials edition (NCSE) is a free, online scholarly edition of six nineteenth century periodicals and newspapers. The edition is formed of two integrated components: the 'Facsimile' component - a repository of full-page facsimiles and textual transcripts; and the 'Keyword component - an index of semantic keywords and person, place and institution names. Both components of the system are fully searchable and include rich, bibliographic metadata attached to titles, volumes, issues, departments and articles within the edition. NCSE is a collaboration between Birkbeck College, KingĀ“s College London, the British Library, and Olive Software and was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the NCSE web site - you'll be prompted to login to MUSE as necessary.
