JISC Collections Consultation - 20th Century House of Commons Parliamentary Papers

Response required by 30 November 2007

JISC Collections is considering a licensing agreement with ProQuest. If this were to go ahead, the JISC Collections would, on behalf of the JISC community, pay for the digitised Twentieth Century House of Commons Parliamentary Papers (20C HCPP). If an agreement does go ahead institutions will NOT be required to pay for either the content or an access fee for at least the first five years of the agreement.

The Twentieth Century House of Commons Parliamentary Papers (20C HCPP) includes the complete file of twentieth century papers, filmed images of 104,902 papers, covering 5.2 million pages of working documents of the British Government from 1901-2004. The digitised collection is based on Chadwyck-Healey’s microfiche collection. This resource can be used across a range of subject areas including history, political sciences, economics, international relations, philosophy, political economy, sociology, urban studies, area studies, geography/demography, law, English and women’s studies.
