JISC Collections partners with ProQuest to make another century of House of Commons Parliamentary Papers freely available to universities and colleges

ProQuest's digital House of Commons Parliamentary Papers 1901-2004 will be available free of charge to all staff and students in colleges and universities in the UK through funding from JISC Collections. The online resource, comprising 187,809 individual papers containing over 9.5 million pages, is among the richest and most detailed primary sources for the history of the 20th century and is considered vital to an understanding of the UK's modern development. This agreement extends the partnership between JISC Collections and ProQuest, which began in 2006, to make the 19th century House of Commons Parliamentary Papers available to the UK academic community.
