We warmly invite all our visitors with a regular library card to browse three invaluable document archives from ProQuest's historical primary source collections available for trial on the territory of the library until 18 December.
The Digital National Security Archive consists of expertly curated, and meticulously indexed, declassified government documents covering U.S. policy toward critical world events – including their military, intelligence, diplomatic and human rights dimensions – from 1945 to the present. Each collection is assembled by foreign policy experts and features chronologies, glossaries, bibliographies, and scholarly overviews to provide unparalleled access to the defining international issues of our time.
The Documents on British Policy Overseas is a fully searchable collection of primary source documents from Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), shedding light on diplomatic history throughout the 20th C. It is based on three print series which form a record of British peacetime diplomacy since the end of the 19th century.
The House of Commons Parliamentary Papers is the most detailed primary source for the past two centuries, for Britain, its colonies and the wider world. It is a major part of the historical record. They are the working documents of government for all areas of social, political, economic and foreign policy, showing how issues were explored and legislation was formed.
The databases are available on the territory of the library via devices connected to the library network: https://www.ogyk.hu/en/electronic-resourcesPublished on - 2019-11-19 10:57:00
