New Wellcome Library online subscriptions

The Wellcome Library has recently taken out a subscription to Oxford Art Online, which offers the ability to access and search the vast content of Grove Art Online and Oxford art reference works in one location. The resource covers all aspects of the visual arts from prehistory to the present day, from art and architecture to ceramics and photography, and is available to readers through PCs in the Wellcome Library.

In other subscription news, the following resources are now available remotely to Wellcome Library readers:

House of Commons Parliamentary Papers
(Provides access to over 200,000 House of Commons sessional papers from 1715 to the present day, with supplementary material back to 1688. HCPP delivers page images and searchable full text for each paper, along with a detailed subject index).

Peridicals Archive Online: JISC Collections selection
